Revision Date: April 1, 2022:
We go to great lengths to deliver healthy honey bees to our customers, and we take this one step further by offering a Live Bees Guarantee on all of our live bees products.
Our guarantee covers items listed under each live bees product below. It is very important that you note what is covered by the guarantee and any steps you may be required to take. If you identify any items covered in the Live Bees Guarantee, you need to contact us immediately by email within the time frames listed. Further information, inspection results, videos and/or pictures will be required for verification.
After you pick up your bees, there are no refunds.
The guarantee will end after the dates listed for specific items. If after these dates, you have any questions or concerns, you can still contact us and we will assist you to the best of our abilities. No refunds can be issued after the pick up date.
Please note the guarantee does NOT cover:
If you have any questions about over all bee health, you can contact Hiveworld customer service or the office of the Provincial Apiculturists via email, or phone at AB 780-422-6096 email, BC 778-666-0582 email options, or SK 306-980-6198 email.
In the event Hiveworld is unable to supply bees for the 2022 season, clients will be refunded (this depends on the timing of the refund from our honey bee supplier.) You will be refunded in the same payment method used at the time of purchase. Before we process a refund, you will receive an email confirming the return is being processed.
For any refunds that are issued, it can take up to 7 business days for the funds to get credited back to your account.
If there are any issues with your refund, please contact our Customer Service by telephone 833.460.4483 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
