    Now Stocking Classic Top Bar Hives

    - transport, sealing, taping, or closing bees in any way are the responsibility of the new happy owner of the bees.

    - bring your protective clothing; or arrive early to purchase it from our store here

    - its best to pick them up when the foragers are in house,ie. in early morning when it is still cool, or 15 minutes before dark. (night transport is the best)

    - the optimum transport is the back of a pickup, although the bees can be restricted for car transport (at your own risk)
    -  ratchet tie down straps are needed for transporting singles and full colonies 
    - we do not stop the flight of bees, or close entrances; this is up to you. IT IS OUR POLICY NOT TO RESTRICT BEES FOR TRANSPORT. It is up to you as the new owner of the bees to decide how best to move your bees.
    - for car transport you may wish to bring a sheet or netting to cover the bees

    - we are not responsible for bees that get over heated once they leave our care 
    - all bees sold are in need of larger living quarters right away. Nucs will need to be installed into waiting 10 frame equipment. Singles will need their 2nd box. Doubles will need to have honey supers put on. The bees we sell are strong and need the room when you get them.
    - we recommend feeding nucs especially if they are being installed on un-drawn foundation
