Package Bees


Good news for those with package bees on the March 31st pickup date. The package bes will be available for pickup starting at 9AM on Thursday May 1oth. Please see the email that is forth comiing for more details.

 

For those on the April 14th pickup date we are still awaiting a delivery date to be established for them.

 

We are curently sold out of package bees for this year. However, we are starting a wait list for packages on the second pickup date. We know that packages will free up as the season goes on.

 

Due to the weather, here and in Georgia, the March 31st and April 14th package bees & queens will be delayed.

        I expect the delay to be a minimum of 3 weeks and perhaps longer. The word is they have the bees but with all of the rain and cool temperatures they do not have good queens. And as we all know there is no use in getting package bees if the queens are not well mated.

         We will put updates on our website and will send out a email as soon as a new pick up date is scheduled.

         I also expect the April 14th pick up date to slip to late May or early June.

 

We are offering both 3# and 4# packages of honey bees. The packages are made up with young high quality Italian bees with either a Russian or Italian queen. 3# packages are $100.00 each and 4# packages are $116.00 each with an Italian queen. There is a $3.00 additional charge for each package with a Russian queen. Package are currently scheduled for pickup on Saturday March 31, 2018 or Saturday April 14, 2018. However, the weather conditions in North Georgia may not cooperate with our schedule. As a result pick up dates may be subject to change.

Package Bee orders MUST BE PLACED by April 25, 2018 for the second pickup date.

As always keep in mind that the supply of packages, nucs and queens is limited and orders are taken on a first come first served basis. So order early!

Package Bee Warranty- All package bees are sold with an “as is” warranty. Once they are loaded on/in your vehicle they are yours. This is a standard livestock warranty as applied throughout agriculture, because the seller has no control over how the packages will be transported or cared for after they leave their possession. If the queen supplied with the package bees is dead we have a limited supply of replacement queens available for this eventuality. If we have depleted the supply of replacement queens we will give you the contact information for our package bee supplier and they will mail a replacement queen directly to you. This allows for your receipt of a replacement queen in a more timely fashion.

Early Queens


Individual queens are available for requeening colonies or doing splits. Italian queens are $25.00 each and Russian queens are $28.00each.

Queen orders MUST BE PLACED by March 23, 2018 for the first pickup date and April 6, 2018 for the second pickup date.

Early Queens are currently scheduled for pickup on Saturday March 31, 2018 or Saturday April 14, 2018. However, the weather conditions in North Georgia may not cooperate with our schedule. As a result pick up dates may be subject to change.

Nucs


We will start scheduling the pickup dates for the first nuc shipment April 28th. 

We are now taking nuc orders for a second shipment of nus for pick up the week of May 21st.

This spring we will have 5 frame nucs available in mid-April with VSH Italian queens. The nucs are being sourced from South Carolina and will have a 2018 mated queen, 2 - 3 frames of brood and 1 - 2 frames of honey. The cost of each nuc is $170.00 with an arrival date in mid-April. The actual pick up date will be confirmed as we get closer to the beginning of April.

We will also have a limited number of local 5 frame nucs available for pickup beginning in late-May with a 2018 VSH Italian or Russian queen. The local nucs are $170.00 each. The nucs will have a minimum of 2 frames of brood and remaining frames of stores and all frames covered with bees.

Nuc Warranty - All nucs are sold with an “as is” warranty. Once they are loaded on/in your vehicle they are yours. This is a standard livestock warranty as applied throughout agriculture, because the seller has no control over how the nuc will be transported or cared for after they leave their possession. If the queen is dead in your nuc we will replace it.
