8 frame boxes urgently required, lower Hunter Valley, NSW
« on: January 15, 2017, 07:28:40 AM »
Hi all,

The short story is I need some 8 frame boxes fairly urgently to re-box some bees I recently bought. These hives have all been established from swarms from an original 2 boxes over 12 + years; an old guy had them and the boxes are pretty run down. I had a lot of "fun" getting them moved, bees getting out in all directions, gaffer tape is pretty handy stuff!

So, I'm on the hunt for some boxes, don't have time to assemble/treat/paint from scratch but sanding/ painting I can do. Happy to travel a bit for the right boxes at the right price.

Thanks in advance.

Joe

Hey Mate, Nuplas has awesome Plastic box's which take only minutes to screw together. They will freight them to you for $30 flat rate. Cheaper than the driving around to pick some up.
Cheers

8 deeps are a little scarce on the east coast currently due to the NZ quake.
