The 3 lb. Carniolan Honey Bee Package is perfect for beekeepers looking to get an early start in the spring. Carniolan honey bees are best known for being the first bees to begin foraging in the spring, so it's great choice if you need to give your bees as much time as possible to forage. In addition, Carniolan bees are generally more docile than many other species and typically build up a lot of beeswax.
The following items are included with the 3 lb. Carniolan Honey Bee Package:
- 3 lbs. of Carniolan Honey Bees
- Carniolan Queen Bee (Queen Cage)
- Feeder Can
- Bee Cage
Installing a bee package can be a relatively easy process or you can use the old methods to make it much more complicated. See the video below for a tutorial we put together for one of our update letters that shows how to do it the easy way.
At this point in time, we are only able to provide local pickups or arranged drop-offs for our 3 lb. Carniolan Honey Bee Package.
The reason we can't do any shipping currently is that most carriers will not ship live honey bees. Those that do are often not very careful which can kill the bees. Because of this, we have to bring in the bees from California ourselves and have had to adopt a local pickup or drop-off only policy until we can find a suitable alternative shipping solution that protects the bees.
