The descriptions of all items offered for sale in the links below are provided by the sellers.

The buyer and seller accept full responsibility for all transactions – if in doubt, don’t buy/sell.
Buyers: (particularly beginners) please do not purchase bees until you are ready and know how to look after them, or have the support of a competent mentor/beekeeper, a suitable apiary and all the necessary equipment (if you don’t now what this is, you’re not ready).
Sellers: make sure that all equipment is clean and sterilised prior to sale. If selling colonies/nucs: unless you are certain of a potential purchaser’s ability to care for bees (or if a buyer is a member), please seek clarification via this link before making a sale.
Sellers and buyers should read the BBKA guide to Buying & Selling Bees and follow the advice provided. Ideally, the colony will conform to the specification given on the second page. Any shortfall in the colony/nuc should be made very clear to the purchaser and under no circumstances should should an unhealthy or failing colony be sold.
