Bees are not included with the hive. If you are looking to get started it is not recommended to purchase an empty hive as getting the bees inside is almost impossible without a source beforehand.

The bees to suit the hive are sub-tropical and only go as far south as NSW. This is not suitable for VIC, SA or TAS.
