G'day from Vacy, Australia
« on: January 15, 2017, 07:12:23 AM »
Hi all,

Just joined the forum, from the lower Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. I've recently bought 8 hives after playing with bees for a year or so. These new hives are cranky and all brood  boxes need repair work or replacement. Some supers need work as well. A mix of 1 & 2 supers on very strong colonies,  nearly ful of honey. Lots of work to do, but hey, everyone needs a challenge, right? My older boxes are calmer, I've requeened some time ago and they're fun to work with.

So, I'm desperate for some 8 frame boxes to get on top of this reboxing work before Winter. Anyone close by who has some for sale? I'm busy making new bottom boards and lids and have a supply of frames to go on with, but don't have the time to make/treat/paint new boxes from scratch.

Thanks,

Joe.

Welcome to BeeMaster.
Good luck getting a bunch of 8 frame boxes. Short of buying them new, it would be tough finding 8 frame boxes here.
