Each package comes contains 3 lbs of honeybees (approximately 10,000 bees) and comes with a naturally mated Carniolan or Italian queen. (Race is preference only, as available, not guaranteed). Packages are available for in-store pickup only. They typically arrive in early-to-mid April. An estimated arrival date will be provided a few weeks ahead of time. We continually update the arrival date as we get more information from the breeder.
We try to accommodate customers who want to pick up their bees later that than the delivery date, but packaged bees deteriorate with each day they are not hived. We strongly urge you not to delay. We cannot be responsible for late pick-ups.
All livestock orders have a $10 cancellation fee until February 28, 2019. Livestock orders cannot be cancelled after February 28.
Please provide an email address we cannot call customers regarding package pickup schedule. All information regarding package pickup schedule will be provided on the website and to the email address you provide.
