Lease to own options available

We have had a lot of enquiries recently from Southern Hemisphere beekeepers gearing up for the season, but for some the tight cashflow at this time of year makes it difficult to justify setting up full monitoring systems.

So, to help reduce the hurdles and make systems available, we are now happy to offer lease to own options, so you can lease a system, get up and running for the season, and if you decide to purchase it in the new year, when you have sold some honey, we will reduce the purchase price by the amount you have spent in lease payments up to that time. For more details:

Research project in Central Otago

We are currently assisting Sue Michelsen-Heath, from the University of Otago, with the monitoring aspects of her research project looking into the bioaccumulation of the organophosphate chlorpyrifos in honey bee colonies. (We also recommend never playing scrabble with Sue).
