Have someone on your list who wants to get started in beekeeping? A starter kit, course or tools always makes a great gift! We also have gourmet gift boxes with our signature honey to make your gift giving easy this year.
In our experience over the past two years, the most reliable source for receiving live bees in the spring has been to order package bees. If you are a new beekeeper, we would usually recommend starting with a nuc, but because they have becomemuch harder to secure, you may want to try things a different way this year.
You can move a hive in one day if it's over 1 mile away. The bees will be fine and reorient themselves. If you are doing a smaller move, less than 1 mile, you will need to take some extra steps to move your hive successfully.
