 Shipping Bees



Unfortunately, we do NOT ship nucleus colonies or packages of bees at all. We only have them available for pick up at our Greenwich, NY location. We don't ship because it is too much stress on the bees and there is a good chance of them overheating.

As for Queens, we DO ship to the 48 contiguous states during season. They are always sent overnight via FedEx, so there is no issue of us shipping them. 


If you are looking for bees, your best bet is to check with your local or state beekeeping association for local places to get them.
