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. 2023 Package Sales are now closed:

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

- 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.
