Packages of Bees are now out of stock for 2022. We may still have nucs of bees for purchase this year. Check for nucs or give us a call (818) 280-6500.
Bees are for pick up only. We do not ship bees. One of the preferred ways to start a bee colony is with a package of bees. A package consists of three pounds of bees in a wooden box with screens on two sides. Inside the box, there will be a can of sugar syrup and a small cage containing a mated queen hanging by a metal tab. Here, the queen is able to be cared for by nurse bees until the package is ready to be installed inside of a hive box.
A package contains:
Three Pounds of Bees
A Can of Sugar Syrup
A Mated Marked Queen
If bees are not picked up on the scheduled day, your funds will be forfeited.
It is imperative that you provide accurate contact information so that we can communicate with you regarding your order. As soon as an arrival date is known, we will send out an email with important pick-up details. Make sure to respond, so that we know you have received the information. Every attempt will be made to contact you about the bees; however, it is incumbent upon you to pick up the bees at the appointed time stated by The Valley Hive.
We hope that you understand, bees are live animals and are provided “as is” without any warranties. We cannot issue refunds once the bees have left our property.
