Spring 2019 Bee Package Pickup Waitlist

SPRING BEE PACKAGES: Bee Built will be securing 3 pound package bees from Old Blue in Oregon. In April, packages will have a California mated queen, in May packages will have an Oregon mated queen.

We have a waitlist for April (California origin) packages, and May (Oregon origin) packages. Please sign up for the month you are interested in purchasing a package and picking up your bees.

From Old Blue: "Old Blue's queens are selected for varroa-sensitive hygienic behavior (for surviving unavoidable varroa mite parasitism), ability to fly in cool temperatures and adverse weather conditions (for bringing in nectar and pollen resources as a food source for the colony as well as surplus for human harvest), strong spring buildup of population, wing power (for foraging longer distances), and a resistance to brood diseases."

We ask for only your name, address, and contact info for the wait list and will later contact you in January for 50% down to secure your package or packages. The other 50% would be due at time of pickup.

Of note: Bees are a superorganism and will do as the colony wishes, when it wishes. It isn't common, but bees can abscond when installed, if they decide they don't like the environment. Due to this, we cannot guarantee packages, as once they leave our premises, the beekeeper is responsible for them. Thank you for understanding!
