Our first load of package bees for pickup has come and gone. The second load will be arriving next week and will be available for pick up on May 9th or 10th between 8:00 and 5:00 either day. This of course if for customers that have preordered packages. We do have a few extra packages available so if anyone is interested you should reserve them now.
Package bee shipments are still ongoing; the Italian packages are still shipping on schedule. The All American and Buckfast bees are a couple of days behind due to sever weather conditions in the south.
We will have our first Carniolan queens available starting tomorrow April 29th and we hope to inventory them all summer long. In most cases we are able to ship the same day. We prefer using UPS when shipping queens, yes the shipping is more expensive, but we are able to track the shipment and get a guaranteed delivery date. We will ship via the Post Office on request but we will not guarantee live delivery of the queen when using the Post Office.
