For Sale

On this page, and its companion the "Wanted" page, are listed items which may be able to change hands. In this context Dorchester and Weymouth Bee Keepers are only the messengers and it is up to you to confirm that everything is as it should be.

If you have items for sale then just let me know at Best to send in a complete description suitable for newbies as they are most likely to be interested. In addition send in photos, preferably JPEG but I can handle most sizes, formats and resolutions. In addition supply contact details which will be published with your advert.

Once you have sold the item then do let me know. I will then remove the listing.


GasVap for Sale

If you don't know what a GasVap is then you are not alone. It is a device for fumigating hives to rid them of varroa - and this is the right time of year to be planning just such a task. If you want to know more about GasVap they have a site here.

Rowland has a used Gasvap for sale. It comes with oxalic measure, 4 caps and poly hive extension tube. Approximately £60 worth if purchased new but to us just £35.
