2017 Bee Packages available now

We decided to release pre-ordering of our 2017 bee packages.

You can order your 2017 package of bees right now at this link http://livebees.beemaniacs.com/

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.

You can place your order now at this website: http://livebees.beemaniacs.com/
