Pre-order a package of bees now for the 2024 Spring beekeeping season. Bees are for pick up only. We do not ship bees.  In the past, package pick up day has been on a Wednesday (10am to 1pm), and we hope to schedule it this way again for April 2024. Keep this in mind when placing your order.

One of the preferred ways to start a bee colony is with a package of bees. A package consists of approximately 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.  We suggest that you hive the package of bees just before dusk on the day you pick them up from us.
A package contains:
Three Pounds of Bees
A Mated Marked Queen

REFUND/CANCELATION POLICY:
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.  In the rare event, you find your queen bee is dead upon opening your package of bees, please contact The Valley Hive immediately so we can help you.  

REFUND/CANCELATION POLICY BEFORE APRIL 1ST
Orders for packages of bees and nucs of bees may be canceled and refunded for a $50 restocking/cancelation fee, until March 31, 2024. 
REFUND/CANCELATION POLICY APRIL 1ST
There will be no refund if you need to cancel your order starting April 1, 2024, your payment will be forfeited.  If bees are not picked up on the scheduled pickup day, your funds will be forfeited. 

BEE PICK UP
Bee pick-up day will be scheduled for a day in April 2024 at The Valley Hive in Chatsworth. As soon as we have an exact day, we will communicate via email with a pick-up date 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, package pick up day has been on a Wednesday (10am to 1pm), and we hope to schedule it this way again for April 2024. Keep this in mind when placing your order. If bees are not picked up on the scheduled day, your funds will be forfeited. 

CONTACT INFO
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.
