Package Bee Policies
Package bees available for purchase January through April or until sold out. They are pick up only, at available locations. Email notifications will be sent out prior to pick up, with dates, times, address and directions. Package bees are time sensitive and must be picked up immediately! Our package bees come from California and arrival dates are dependent on weather conditions in California and the truck route to the Midwest, last minute changes may happen. We try to keep everyone updated through email and you may also follow our package bee delivery on Facebook. If you prefer a printed mail order form, contact us and we will gladly email or snail mail one to you.
We guarantee you will have live bees at time of pick up. Once picked up they are no longer our responsibility as we are not in control of handling or installing. We only offer mated laying Queens in the packages, and guarantee them for 24 hours from time of pick up. Package bees must be picked up within the 48 hour window given. Any packages not picked up within the times indicated may be forfeited with no refund. We also recommend hiving them right away. Delaying installation will add more stress to the colony.
We only offer mated laying Queens. We do ship queens. If You receive a dead queen in the mail, contact us within 24 hours for a replacement (Proof of Death is required).
Queen Marking Offered to queen orders of less than 20 queens. Additional $5.00 marking fee. May not be available during package season. Call ahead for availability.
