2023 Live Bee Reservations

We offer various live bee options each year. Typically reservation in advanced is needed.

- Imported Packaged Bees: We import Arataki packaged bees (in tubes) from New Zealand & 1.5 KG Tasmanian packages (in meshed boxes) each year. Typically we begin taking reservations in December-January, and they arrive in March or early April.

- Nucs: We purchase nucleus colonies ("nucs") from local producers each year. Typically we begin taking reservations in February-March, and they arrive in May.

- Queens: We import queens in the Spring & Summer, and have locally produced queens in the Summer once they become available. Reservations for the earliest options typically open January-February, and the first batches arrive in early April.

To be notified when more details for the 2023 Live Bee options become available and be the first to know when reservations are open, we recommend signing up for our newsletter below and/or Contact Us to be added to our notification lists.
