Another busy week of taking package bee orders. Our first load of bees, that will be here for pickup on April 21st, will be sold out sometime this coming week. Once it is sold out we will still be taking orders for the May 5th pickup date.
All shipped package bee orders taken now will start being shipped in May sometime. I will send emails out to everyone that places an order with their proposed ship date within week or two after receiving your order. I want to remind everyone that ship dates are affected by things that we can not control…mostly the weather conditions but sometimes queen production and even the Post Office can affect when the bees ship. I will post any delays on this page and the package bee page if they occur.
We have been making up some syrup pails just in case we need them this spring. This is a good time of year to make up some syrup to be ready for your package bees. We mix ours with 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. If you don’t have time to make syrup you can always use a light corn syrup directly as feed.
