Italian/Carniolan hybrid bees. 3 pounds of bees with a mated queen. In order to provide an efficient quick pickup process we stagger pickups every 15 minutes. Please be considerate and arrive at the time that you have chosen. There are no refunds for orders not picked up since these are livestock. We suggest that first time beekeepers take a class before attempting to establish a hive. We cannot guarantee the bees health after they are picked up. There are simply too many variables.
