Here’s a helpful website with a big list of sellers – aussiebee.com.au
If you’re buying a hive with bees from an unknown seller make sure you get a 12 month Guarantee or a Warranty that the hive will survive. Sometimes hives can look healthy but can slowly die out over many months. Prices can range from $350 to $700 depending on the strength of the colony, quality of the box and level of support you receive.
Here’s a few suppliers of live bees that i have met and am happy to recommend. They offer a guarantee and are friendly and helpfull. They can also post the hives.
