Package Bees

Bee packages are a screened in box of bees.  It typically has a queen in a queen cages on the inside.  It also has a can of corn syrup to drip food to the bees.   Its often hard to acquire packages without ordering them months in advance.

Bee packages are shippable and can last for up to 2 weeks since they have a food source. This that makes them a desirable commodity. 

Typically the package companies service large bee operations. Typical pricing for a package is $105-$175 depending on shipping and availability.  BUT let me tell you about a much better deal for my local customers.

My Focus this year, 2015-2016, is to service local pick up customers.  Rather than Bee packages,  for only a small percentage more (and sometimes even less cost) I sell Nucleus Hives and Starter Hives.  Please see the Nuc and Hives button to the left.  These Nucs hives have more bees a queen, AND 5 frames of established bee colony.  Bees from a package could take months to accomplish what a Nucleus hive has from the get go.

Buying a nucleus hive (5 frames)  is a value far beyond just a bee package.  Just not shippable, but easily transportable – one person can carry it easily.

Buying a Starter Hive (a 8 or 10 frame hive) is the best value but is bulkier and although one person can carry and move it its helpful to have a helper or a dolly.   I can offer delivery services if so desired.
