Wanted to Buy – Deep Frames with Brood

I want to buy your deep frames of brood (preferably capped brood to reduce loss from brood chill) with sufficient nurse bees to the cover brood.  Willing to pay $20 dollars per deep frame that has at least 50 percent capped brood.  Purchase offer is now thru April.

Something to consider: If you have a strong hive you will need to manage it to prevent swarming later this spring.  One way to reduce swarming is to do splits or start nucs to rein them back as we enter the swarm season or they will swarm.  This helps mimic swarming by reducing congestion in the hive which triggers swarming.

If you don’t want to or not sure how to or don’t have the time to do splits to increase your hives or to raise nucs for resale from your strong hives please consider selling me your swarms to be.  This will also let you rotate out older drawn frames by replacing the frames of brood removed with new undrawn frames and it relieves congestion in the hive.  It is best to alternate drawn frames with brood with undrawn frames which is referred to checker boarding.

Additional offer:  I will be getting club queens in early April.  If you want to replace your old queen and she is still laying well I will trade you even up old for new queen as long as you sell me at least 2 or 3 brood frames at the $20 per frame price.

If you are interested please contact:
