We are now taking reservations for package bees! First come first served!
Getting reservations going took a little longer this year because some of the suppliers are adapting to new practices, with respect to package bees. Some will be using a new package, and a gel/fondant food supply rather than the syrup cans. So it took a little extra time to get all the ducks in a row on pricing and estimated delivery.
Please take a look at our Package Bee Reservation Information here.
You can place your order for package bees by looking in the "Local Offerings" category, under "Bees & Queens". Click here.
We ask for a $65 deposit per package at the time you place your reservation, and will ask for the balance shortly before delivery.
Or - new this year - you can pay in full for your bees when you place your order and save $10.
With all that said, our offerings this year are as follows:
|3 lbs. bees w/ Italian queen||March 26||$110||$65 / $55||Weather is especially variable in March, so these packages are for folks prepared to install bees in inclement weather|
|3 lbs. bees w/ Russian queen||Early April||$120||$65 / $65|
|3 lbs. bees w/ Carniolan queen||
Late April /
$65 / $77
