From our members:

Just wanted to thank you and the NCBA members who assisted with the package pick-up Saturday! Although delayed a bit, my wife Tami and I came home and put the packages in the garage until the next day. The bees seemed very eager to find their new home and I don’t remember seeing so few dead bees in the packages (less than 10 bees each),

Thanks again!

Don and Delivery Crew,
You guys handled the kinks is in the trip.
Good job.
Delivering the bees on the coldest, wettest day in a month went well considering the adjustments you had to make.

Now that my new colony is happily installed in its hive, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you and the package team volunteers for a job extremely well done. I greatly appreciated the emails with details, reminders and special topics throughout the month. Despite the weather hiccup, it seemed like distribution on Saturday went extremely well. I arrived at the start of my time slot and was the only vehicle in line. And despite the poor weather, I noticed surprising few dead bees upon installation.

Kudos to you and the team!

Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the packages. Both queens are alive and they are in their new home.

About NCBA – Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association

The Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association (NCBA) is an organization of both hobbyist and commercial beekeepers.  We exist to provide a forum for education in beekeeping both to our members and to the general public, and for exchange of ideas and experiences.  We also enjoy some ability to provide savings in bees by purchasing as a group.  We are affiliated with the Colorado State Beekeepers Association.  We meet once a month with the above objectives in mind.  Each meeting strives to discuss one or two subjects of interest in beekeeping.  Whenever possible we will discuss beekeeping and hive maintenance activities appropriate for the next month.  We also like to provide time for members to discuss beekeeping among themselves.  Once a year, usually around January, we conduct a multi-session beginning beekeeping class.  On completion of the class, we offer you the opportunity to join the association, to order bees, and we offer you a mentor to help you get off to a good start.  If you have any interest in keeping bees, we encourage you to join us. We believe joining a beekeeping association such as ours is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to start beekeeping. By joining now you will receive our news letter as well as notification of upcoming classes and meetings.  Dues are modest and affiliates members with the Colorado State Beekeepers Association. See the pages about future and past meetings for examples of meeting content..
