PACKAGED BEES  

 3 lb. PACKAGE OF CORNIOLAN HONEYBEES- Sold Out

We deliver fresh and local 3 lb. packages of Carniolan Bees to the Bay Area at 3 convenient pick up locations:
North Bay, South Bay,  & East Bay

 




Carniolan bee are known for their great gathering zeal and are exceptionally gentle and easier to work with than other, more aggressive breeds. This is very important because many beekeepers raise honeybees in the vicinity of their homes, where aggressive bees could cause trouble if they swarm. We highly recommend this breed for backyard beekeepers. They also overwinters well so they take advantage of early nectar flow, producing honey early in the season; an excellent choice for the Bay Area!

When do they arrive?
Bees will arrive April 19th.  The Pick up location islisted below.   Bees MUST be picked up during this time & immediately hived because they only survive about five days in their packages.
