Pre-order a nuc of bees now for the 2022 Spring beekeeping season. Bees are for pick up only. We do not ship bees. Because a nuc is an established colony, the bee population will expand quickly, and you may even be lucky enough to get honey in the first year (no promises though). The nuc consists of:
• An Unmarked Queen
• Worker Bees
• 5 Drawn Out Frames of Wax
The included frames will contain a combination of brood, pollen and honey.
Orders for packages and nucs may be returned and refunded for the full amount until March 31, 2022.
REFUND POLICY AFTER APRIL 1ST
A store credit will be issued for all cancelled orders received after April 1st. We cannot accept cancellations the day before the scheduled pick up day. If bees are not picked up on the scheduled day, your funds will be forfeited.
BEE PICK UP
Bee pick up is in April at The Valley Hive in Chatsworth. As soon as we have an exact day, we will communicate via email with pick up dates and times. We do our best to keep customers updated as to the arrival date. However, typically we do not know the exact date until a few weeks beforehand. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the arrival date of bees may change. In the past, nuc pick up has been on a Thursday and Friday evening (after dark). Please keep this in mind when placing your order. 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.
