We permit small adverts here for single or a few items from private individuals free of charge. If you are selling on a slightly larger scale or are a fully commercial organisation, then we are also happy to host occasional (1-2 per year) short notes here for free if you place paid-for adverts in the Scottish Beekeeper. Contact: advertising@scottishbeekeepers.org.uk

Equipment: remember if buying secondhand hives to destroy all comb and scorch the interior surface of wooden boxes after scraping down to remove all wax and propolis.

Bees: SBA recommends local bees. Our advice to prospective buyers of bees is to enquire locally as to the reputation of the seller and to explicitly ask the seller for information on any inspections by the inspectorate or the seller himself for brood disease.
