The Beekeeping Beginners Kit is pickup only from our Auckland HQ….Sorry we don't ship live bees.

Note on Pick Up : You'll need to bring ratchet-ties plus a large sheet to cover ( in case there's a stray bee ) when you pick up to secure the Beehive for transportation. We will provide a mesh cover to the entrance. Pick up best time is at night or before sunrise.

We encourage you to come and visit your Beehive before pick-up.
Please note: Staff at kiwimana are DECA certified and will check your colonys' hive-health before their departure.

Your Beehive will be ready around Dec 2018 but is dependant on the progress of the season and growth of colony.

We require a deposit of $200 to secure your bees, this deposit is non-refundable if you change your mind, but if for whatever reason we cannot produce the bees, this deposit will be fully refunded.

Important Information: Staff at kiwimana will visually inspect colony for health before pick up with you, however once the colony leaves the Apiary, the are no guarantees given. You will receive a FREE course of Api Life Var treatment.

    Hi Ripai, you would need to check with your local council as to rules or bylaws which apply to having a Beehive in your area. In Auckland you can have beehives in both rural and urban areas without rerstriction but they have a nuisance bylaw which just means there are a few rules to follow – one deals with flight-path – place the hives so they don’t interfere with folks walking by. Yes beginner kits with Bees are bred in Spring and usually ready around November – we have a free newsletter and if you join that and the waitlist for the beginner kit with bees you will be emailed when they are back in stock – we will be taking orders for them around July August 2019. We have some free articles to help beginner beekeepers to get started and what to be aware of – here is a link to the first one : https://kiwimana.co.nz/essential-beekeeping-equipment/ here is the link to the second one : https://kiwimana.co.nz/essential-beehive-components/ Here is the link to the third one :https://kiwimana.co.nz/6-essential-pieces-of-info-about-beekeeping/….To discuss more happy for you to call (09) 810 9965. Thanks. Regards Margaret and Gary…it’s the kiwimana buzz…
