04/17/2022 OHB Packages - Slight Delay

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.

Here's the part that changed since last time:

Delivery date: We've received word that snow in the mountains has delayed the truck leaving CA by a day. At this time, it looks like pickup will be Wednesday and Thursday, April 20 & 21. And even now, the timeline remains fluid. When will we know for sure? After we've loaded our bees and started back. Which will be Monday - possibly Tuesday.
We'll finalize hours for pickup once we're surer of our return time. We do open for extended hours the first couple of days after they arrive.

Weather considerations: 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.
