They can be bought from any local supplier- time to start your Xmas list:)

I have also adapted a brood box to be 2- 5 frame Nucs, ready for next years attempt at queen breeding.

Just a note- in the tiny nucs you need a full mug full of bees, in a 5 frame you need 3 frames bees or they wont get cracking on queen rearing

We have a member on the forum who sells just Queen rearing kit.
Its a bit embarrassing that I have forgotten his username because I purchased some kit off him a couple of months ago..
