of Italian Bees in a 10 Frame Hive Box
with 5 blank frames for room to grow
These are commercial grade
hive boxes with screwed down tops for easy removal and screened bottom board
and will have closed entrances for
safe transport. The hives will have 5 frames installed with 5 empty blank
frames for the bees to expand the next.
Hives will be treated for Varroa* Mites prior to pickup
* Varroa Destructor - (Varroa spp.) is an external parasitic mite that
attacks the honey bees and is considered the number one cause of colony
Each hive comes with a mated and laying Italian Queen and
5 frames of
bees consisting of a
balanced mix of brood and food. The hives
will be about half full of bees and half blank frames, which means they will
not require an additional 10 frame box as soon. Adding another
brood box to the top of these or in the future is recommended as they will
eventually need room to expand and grow.
We offer Additional Boxes with new blank
frames that can be added to your order (see below) and ready for pickup with your bees.
We also offer a basic Beekeeper Starter
Kit at a discount. Add a kit to your order if you do not already have
supplies to work bees. The kit contains a top quality vented jacket with
fencing hood, a pair of goat skin leather gauntlet style beekeeper gloves, a
hive tool and a smoker.

Cancellation, Refund and Return Policy:
Since we must make all necessary arrangements and commitments to secure
everything needed to fill orders, from equipment to bees to queens etc., all
cancellations for refunds must be requested within seven days from the time
the order is placed.
Returns for bees: Since bees are livestock and are subject to diseases,
pesticides, temperatures and
other factors that effect their health, and we have no control over the
conditions the bees are subjected to once they leave our yards, we require a
notice within 24 hours if there is any health issues with the bees.
