Honeybee Package and Nuc Sales
Thank you for your support!
Look for updates here and in the newsletter as status changes.
Sales shall be first come / first served. That is true whether you are a member or not. Members enjoy a $10 savings per colony.
You must provide a phone number where you can be reached on the delivery day (think a Saturday). If you don’t pick up your bees by 4 PM, then we will make one and only one attempt to contact you by phone to remind you to get your bees.
In the beekeeping industry, there is an assumed 4% “dead on arrival’ rate for package queens. Our supplier will be providing queens to cover this issue. In all cases, the dead queen must be returned in the unopened queen cage delivered with the package. Install your package ASAP! If you find a dead queen on Saturday AND can get back to the pick up location before 6 PM we will replace your queen there. You will have two days, until Monday, at 4 PM, to notify us of a dead queen found during package installation. We’ll arrange for you to trade your dead queen for a living caged queen.
You will be given a one page hard copy of transport and installation instructions at the time of package pickup. You should read and follow these guidelines. They are meant to help you keep your bees alive.
Expect Packages to arrive near the End of April. Expect Nucs to arrive mid May. Customers will be notified of exact dates when they are known. You must arrange to have your bees picked up on the delivery day, no exceptions. No, we will not babysit your bees for a few extra days.
