    5 Star experience

    Posted by Dianne Toshack on 3rd May 2017

    I have purchased two Packages of bees in recent months. The bees are very placid and easy to work with. The assistance I received from Hornsby Bee keeping Supplies was very reassuring as I am a newbee. Great products and great service. Wouldn't purchase anywhere else.

    Great Price / Great Bees

    Posted by Trevor Romer on 31st Jan 2017

    Arrived late in afternoon & the store was buzzing with people picking up their bees and lots & lots of bees. Placed my two boxes in the boot and drove carefully & without delay to home. I had already prepared two hives & proceeded to "install" the bees. Having watched every available video on youtube I knew what to do. After a number fumbling attempts I succeeded in getting the bulk of bees into the hives & placed the uncorked (with candy) queen cage in the top of the super. This was made much easier by the fact that they are very friendly bees & I didn't need to use any smoke. Some weeks on now and the two hives are filling up with brood &, already, some honey.

    Bees for the backyard

    Posted by Sarah on 30th Dec 2016

    The package of bees purchased recently settled in really well. Lovely gently bees and the staff were super helpful.
    I'd recommend giving customers the heads up how long the bees need feeding once settled into their home location upon placing their order and a little more information about what to expect in the first few weeks. Super mellow bees, looking forward to checking their handiwork ;)

    Hornsby Beekeeping-supplies is staffed by friendly, relaxed, knowledgeable, and accommodating people. The package bees are pretty much the same.

    Healthy girls

    Posted by Deirdre on 21st Nov 2016

    I collected my package Bees with Mated Queen and have installed them with no problems. Good clear & easy instructions on how best to do this when picking up the girls. The bees are very happy in their new hive and very placid. Very happy with them.

    Bee package

    Posted by Suze on 17th Nov 2016

    1st package I have ever had. Bees are going well. Queen escaped the cage as she should although I thought the Queen would come marked. Shes laying well and young bees are emerging in good shape with pleasant dispositions
