Why can I only pick these up at certain locations?
Safety is our #1 priority. The Bees ship with feed to our chosen destinations. Customer will have to drive to the pickup location of their choice to ensure bees are received within a time limit that allows for continued safety.

Where do these bees come from?
The packaged bees ship from New Zealand. They ship to port in Vancouver and then stop at several destinations across Canada. The complete hives are from Canada.

Can we buy American Honey Bees?
No. Laws prevent importing Honey Bees from the USA.

How many bees am I getting?
The packaged bees include a 1.5kg package of Honey Bees which will include roughly 10,000 bees and 1 queen. The complete hive includes eight frames fully loaded with bees and 1 queen.

How do I know I received a queen?
The queen comes in a separate box with her own food source. In some cases she will be marked with a coloured dot on her head. She is also recognizable by different characteristics. She will be much larger and darker than the other bees.

How do you ensure the safety of Bees in transportation?
Our Bees are shipped on #1 transportation carriers to our stores across Canada. The truck is climate controlled and checked on frequently by driver or other trained personal. Bee boxes are shipped with feed to last the trip across the world.

If buying Honey Bees we strongly recommend you have a industry mentor or have taken training courses.
