We are going to host the first BeeManiacs Bee Day on April 15, 2017.
This will be a very interesting event for beekeepers, with many activities and vendors available that day. That’s the day packages and nucs will be available to be picked up for beekeepers that pre-ordered them at http://livebees.beemaniacs.com/
If you want to buy or sell equipment or tools, we will be hosting a Beekeeping Equipment Swap.
Vendors can participate for free!
To keep the information centralized we have created a new page in our website. Please find more information in this link: http://beemaniacs.com/bee-day/
We do not ship bees. Pickup at BeeManiacs. Estimated pickup date is April 15, 2017.
For 2017 we are partnering with Olivarez Honey Bees, to bring their high-quality packages which are proven to be successful in colder areas. You have to select which race of queen you’d like to purchase (Carniolan or Italian).
The price of the packages includes sales tax and there’s no deposit for the package box. You get 3 lbs of honey bees (about 10,500 bees) and one marked queen in each package, ready to get a new beehive started. We have found that beginner beekeepers really need marked queens, so we always try to secure a supplier that will provide marked queens.
We set aside some packages for early bird discounted price, so if you order early, you could save $15 per package (while supplies last and for limited time). The early bird price is set at $120 per package and the full price is $135.
We have setup a small online store for processing live bee orders. At this time only packages can be ordered and we will add queens and nucs as they become available.
As business grows, we have the need to expand operations in our current location. The first phase of our plan has just started. Phase 1, as we call it, consists of adding a new building of almost 4,000 sq ft for warehouse and office space. … Continue reading →
We just received our first shipment of Bee Cozy winter wraps and inner cover pads from NOD. These products will be carried in-store only for now, but we are planning on bringing them to our online store for nationwide shipping by 2017.
