Package Bees, Nucs, and Queens
Beekeeping is subject to the whims of Mother Nature and the vagaries of climate, stock hardiness and simple luck. Raising honeybees for resale is challenging due to the complex nature of the social insect and the schedules of modern individual lives. Fortunately, beekeeping is possible due to innovations in modern transportation and developments in beekeeping technology such as screened packages, innovative nuc boxes and modern queen cages. Nonetheless, there is risk assumed by any beekeeper when he/ she picks up the noble mantle of supporting and encouraging the natural pollination cycle. All pick-up dates are tentative for the above reasons. Please plan accordingly. Packaged bees are available for in-stock pickup only and are not shipped.
