04/14/2022 OHB Packages - Final Stretch

Posted by

As previously announced, this year, our packages from California will be arriving in one, larger delivery of packages instead of two deliveries a week apart.

Delivery date: As far as we know, the target dates for pickup will be Tuesday April 19 and Wednesday April 20. Until the truck leaves California - and even after that - the timeline remains fluid. When will we know for sure? After we've loaded our bees and started back. Which will be Monday. Maybe.
We can't set hours for pickup until we're surer of the days, but we do open for extended hours the first couple of days after they arrive.

Weather considerations: At the moment, the forecast calls for rain about the time the bees arrive. Your bees will do best if you pick them up promptly, even if you hold them until better weather before installing them. Keep them cool (50-ish degrees) and spray them through the package once a day with sugar syrup and they should hold well for a day or two.

Supplies: We trust you are ready to receive your bees. If you need any last minute items, please place your order online at least one day ahead of your arrival at the shop.

Can't get your bees? If you are unable to pick up your bees within two days of their arrival, please let us know ASAP(!) and we'll do our best to make arrangements with you.

Questions? We'll be doing our best to keep up with inquiries. However, once the bees arrive, we will be focused on distributing the packages. Email and phone messages may take longer to respond to, until the dust starts to settle.

As we get more information, we'll let you know.
Thank you!
