What price?
« on: February 23, 2010, 10:49:14 PM »
I am thinking about placing add in one of our local papers for established hive, anyone got any idea as to what price I would be looking at, last hive I bought was way back in the 80s, paid $80 in those days. [The area is central Queensland]

Cheers Lek.

Why dont you talk with one of the local beeks about getting a nuc off him/her? You would still have to buy the box and frames but you could probably do it for around $120 +_ a bit I would think. Last nuc I bought (this time last year) was a 5 framer and I paid 60 bucks for it

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
