This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Bee Delivery Dates

Package Bee Delivery Dates:
First delivery, 2 lb packages Monday April 11th.
Second delivery 3 lb packages Monday April 18th.
There will be a pick up schedule posted. The schedule goes by the first initial of your last name. You will be given an hour block of time to pick up.
We have to spread beekeepers throughout the day, to assure a speedy hand out of bees. If everyone came at the same time, the wait for bees will be several hours. The pick up schedule system we use works well and most beekeepers are here less than five minutes.
 There is no hurry to put the bees in. The best time to put the bees in the hive is after 6:30 pm.
Watch this blog for updates as the delivery can possible change due to weather in California.
As the delivery date approaches check the blog daily for updates and to make sure the bees have arrived.
Our store is closed on bee pick up day. You need to purchase your bee supplies before the bees come.
 We do sell ProSweet syrup, feeder pails, and pollen patties on bee pick up day.
