​Why Do Beekeepers ​Love Bee Package​s?

Quick​ Start

​In agriculture, getting ​started quickly can make all the difference​ in how successful ​you are. Bee packages ​enable you to get started quickly.

​Queen Guarantee​

​You might not have a queen when you capture a wild swarm or perform a hive split. With bee packages, you're guaranteed to have a queen. 

​Easy Installation

​Capturing a swarm, splitting hives, and other methods are ​more difficult ways to install your bees. Bee package installations are simple & easy​.

​You'll Be Kept In The Loop

We are 100% committed to keep you in the loop all along the way. you'll know all of the pertinent details ahead of time.

​​"I haven't had a good experience with the other suppliers in the area, but I really like the way these guys do business. One thing that has impressed me all along the way with Bear Country Bees is that they are very good at communicating in a professional and timely manner. My other favorite thing is that they arranged a bee package drop-off in Salt Lake City for those of us that live farther away so we didn't have to travel as far ​. That was a nice personal touch. All around great service!"

​Why Do I Have To Pre-Order​ My Packages?

​​Packages are available on a first come, first served basis and even though we order extra packages every year, we completely sell out.

As such, ​bee package pre-orders are a necessity to ensure you​ secure bees for the upcoming season.
