Live Bees Pick up Information

Pick up is Saturday, April 11, from noon until 5:00 pm. Store will be open that day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
If for any reason you cannot make it to pick up your live bees, please contact us at so we can coordinate with you.
If you would like to see some demonstration on how to install packages, we setup two demonstration times: 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm.
At 1:00 pm top bar experts, Jack and Ellen Miller, will install packages in a couple of top bar hives. We will be also installing a package in a Langstroth hive (volunteer to be determined :-).
At 2:00 pm we will be installing packages in one top bar, one Warré and one Langstroth hive.
If you are coming for any of the demonstrations, please bring protective gear.
Since we could have up to 40-50 vehicles show up at the same time, we are changing our access and parking area for Saturday. There will be only one entrance open and plenty of parking and maneuvering space in the grass area to the right of the store.
We still have some Carniolan packages available for sale. Queens and Italian packages are sold out, but if you would like to order some, we are starting a waiting list: just email us
If you have any questions about the schedule, please let us know. For questions about how to install packages we will have time to go over that in person on Saturday with BeeManiacs staff and some experienced beekeepers that will be around.
See you Saturday!
