Hi there Mark, finally I've found another aussie on the fourm!
I picked up some hive components for free, so I'm going to get them irradiated. I think its going to cost about $17 for per 3 box hive. The cost is on dimesions not weight. So that's 3 full depth 8 frame langstroth's, 24 frames, a bottom board and a migratory cover.
That's reasonable. :lol:
