Welcome

Welcome to the new BeeManiacs website.

We recommend you to take some time and try the different links on our menu and see the different sections we have brought to this website. Educational material and a Forum section has been added, so you can learn more about honey bees, take quizzes, and ask questions on the forum.

We recommend you to create an account on this website (Login/Register) so the system can keep track of your posts, progress on educational material and/or quizzes and even your order history. You can delete your account at any time.

New on this site is the option to place orders online for material that you can come to pick up at our store. You can be sitting at home or working around the bee yard and place an order from your computer or your smartphone. We will notify you once it’s ready to pick up.

You can also order items and get them shipped to you. If you have any questions just email us to info@beemaniacs.com

Planning on buying equipment on April 28? Please read on.

Bee Day is usually a busy day.

If you are just picking up pre-ordered package/s, you could do it quickly. You will first get a printed copy of your invoice with a voucher to get the package/s and just pick up the packages whenever you are ready. That simple and pretty fast (we will send more details in another email).

But for beekeepers purchasing material in the store, in 2017 we experienced long lines of up to 2 hours to get through the checkout process. We have implemented many improvements for 2018, hoping to speed up the process as much as possible.

For local beekeepers, we still recommend purchasing and picking up all of your beekeeping equipment before April 28. So you will just need to pick up bees that day.

But we have some beekeepers coming from the Seattle area and central Montana (about an 8-hour drive). Since they come from far away, they will be purchasing some items on that very same day.

To  make the order process faster, you can place orders on our website and select “Pick up at Store.”

The deadline for placing an order online that will be ready to pick up on bee day, is Monday, April 23. All online orders received by April 23 will be confirmed and will be ready to pick up on April 28. We will have your material packed and ready to pick up right next to the bees (no need to go through checkout in the store).

We have also improved our checkout system, so we can process multiple orders in parallel (we used to have a single register).

For placing orders online ahead of time, please follow this link:

We hope that all the improvements we made will provide a better experience for all of our visitors that day.

Package date confirmed – April 28

If you ordered packages from us, you should have received an email on April 5 confirming pick up date for April 28, from 9:00 am to 3:00. This was our original scheduled date and the supplier is able to deliver on time.

The nucs from Old Sol should also arrive on time (May 19), but we will email confirmation by the end of April.

If you ordered packages from us and you did not receive an email confirmation, please contact us at livebees@beemaniacs.com. We need to make sure you can receive our emails.

We will also verify that you do have an active over with us.
