Hives and Equipment for sale

I am selling my 2 hives and all my equipment due to a neighbors  complaints. I have a dozen 10 frame Langstroth deep supers. Extraction equipment, vales, smoker, hive top feeder, everything needed to go from zero to beekeeper in one fell swoop.

I just requeened the 2 hives with Honey Bee Genetics queens. One is nice and strong and the other is building up.

Well over $1300.00 invested...$950.00 gets it all and I can deliver everything to your yard.

Call if you are…
