Starter Kits

We usually recommend beekeepers to buy hive parts individually, picking and choosing the style and quality of parts that fit their beekeeping style.

On normal years new beekeepers attend a beekeeping class and after taking the class about hive material options, they can place the orders. Since COVID hit one year ago, many classes and meetings have been suspended.

To make things easier, we have created a couple of starter hive options that include the hive items needed for installing a package or a nuc of bees:

Live Bee Transport Mesh

Many of our customers transport their nucs or packages inside their cars.

To keep the bees locked in, while maintaining ventilation they need during transport, we have released this new mesh, which fits one nuc, or up to two packages:

High-Quality Plastic Nuc

The designers of this plastic nuc kit were able to add many features to improve over the traditional nucs.

The lid includes ventilation options, a couple of feeding connectors (for different bottles or jugs sizes), and locks to prevent the frames to rattle during transport (frame movement during transport kills bees).

The nuc is made of durable plastic and it doesn’t require painting.

Formic Pro on Sale!

Time to stock up on Formic Pro!

We have a big batch of Formic Pro with sell by date of April 2021. We have set a deep discounted sale price so all units will find a home (or hive) before that date!

The sale price will be active as long as supplies last. We do not ship Formic Pro, so it can only be bought for “pick up at store” and you will need to pick it up before the end of April.

If you buy more than what you need for this spring, you can store the leftover in the freezer for a long time. We just cannot sell the product past the sell-by date, but you can buy it and store it at low temperatures beyond that date.

Formic Pro is the only mite treatment that kills the mites even inside the capped brood cells. It can be used with honey supers on the hive.

The 2-dose packs can be bought here: https://www.beemaniacs.com/product/formic-pro-strips/

Product Reviews

  • Bee Package 2021 ($159.99)
    reviewed by Kathy Haugland

    I purchased a package and have been so happy with them. It was cold and rainy the day I got them and was worried about them. Got them in the hive and they have settled into their new yard. The queen is very active and the hive is going great!

  • Bee Package 2021 ($159.99)
    reviewed by Wendy Bachman

    These Saskatraz package bees are my first hive. I could not express enough how vigorous, gentle, and fast they are at setting up shop in their new hive. I purchased a nuc of a different strain from another place, and under the same exact conditions, the Saskatraz have exceeded my other hive in rearing brood and drawing out new comb. BeeManiacs is an excellent place for those of us who need more guidance, and they care a lot about the health of the bees they offer. A++++ customer service!
