Last Formic Pro Sale of 2021

Time to stock up on Formic Pro!

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

Once Formic Pro is sold out this year, we may not have any more Formic Pro until spring 2022.

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 July.

If you buy more than what you need for this year, 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.

This treatment has Organic Certification: https://nodglobal.com/organic-certification/

Sold out of live bees for the 2021 season

Thank you to all the beekeepers, experienced and new, that purchased bees through BeeManiacs.

This year we tried a couple of new suppliers.

The packages were high-quality and this new supplier had the highest queen successful introduction rate we ever experienced. The small number of queen issues where quickly resolved.

Nucs were pretty succesful too, with some issues on queen rearing down in California and new queen introduction. We will make adjustments for the 2022 season, as our goal is to have zero issues with nuc installations.

We should start taking live bee orders for the 2022 season in January or February, 2022

  • 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!
