Curious About Bees? Why You Should Consider Our Beehives for Sale in Brisbane!

Beekeeping has become a major trend in recent years, with more and more curious individuals looking into starting the trade either as a hobby or with hopes of becoming fledgeling professional beekeepers. There are many great reasons to start beekeeping, from the personal benefits of having these busy pollinators at the ready in your garden to the global impact that bees can have in ensuring food security for the future. If you’re ready to dive into the exciting world of beekeeping, here’s what you need to know if you’re looking for a bee hive for sale in Brisbane.

Buying the Best Beehive for Your Brisbane Garden

Bees and gardens go hand in hand. The bees are naturally attracted to whatever flowers you grow, and in turn, they pollinate your fruits and vegetables so that you can reap the benefits. With Brisbane’s sunny, subtropical climate, the growing season is long, and bees are active for much of it. When you buy a beehive for your Brisbane garden, you will ensure that the bees have the flowers they need and you will very likely have a productive garden throughout much of the year.

At the Bunyip Beekeeper, we have a wide assortment of beekeeping equipment that will help you get your beehive started. We offer a variety of beehive styles so you can find the one that works best for you.

Here’s a quick introduction to two of our popular beehives for sale in Brisbane:

  • The Paradise Honey Beehive is a professional eight frame hive designed for easy stacking and loading. It has excellent insulation which guarantees that your bees will develop and remain healthy despite inclement weather or other environmental factors. Its compact size makes it ideal when your space is limited.
  • Handcrafted Top Bar Beehives are gorgeous, made-per-order units that are custom built for your needs. The top bar design allows for multiple entry points, which assists your bees in driving away many common beehive pests. The hinged roof also lets you quickly inspect your bees to ensure that your hive is healthy and thriving.

There are many other options to consider when you’re ready to buy a beehive in Brisbane, so be sure to ask The Bunyip Beekeeper which beehive is right for you.

How to Get Your Beehive Buzzing

Once you have your hive selected, you’ll want to be sure you get off to a good start. If you buy a single beehive, don’t be surprised if you end up wanting or needing another. It’s typical for beginners to start with two or more hives so that you have more options. Bees can be fickle and may decide they prefer the location of one hive over the other. Plus, you’ll be able to transfer honey or pollen from one hive to another if your first hive is performing weaklier.

Be sure to read up on bees and educate yourself. The more you know about these insects, the better you’ll be at keeping them. The Bunyip Beekeeper provides training and mentorship for new beekeepers, and support for existing apiary enthusiasts. It’s never been easier to get started when you buy your beehive from us in Brisbane.
