We are sold out of queens right now...hopefully a new batch will be in next week.

All of the packages have been spoken for this year.
Check back in November for 2015 packages.

(Pickup dates April 4 & 18, 2015.)

You must feed your bees when you install your packages. The entrance to the sugar water must be within 2" of the queen cage. Jar feeding above the inner cover is preferred. Do not expect top feeders and frame feeders to work. Boardman feeders should be thrown away. It is your responisibility to keep the bees alive once you receive the package. Please inspect the package before you take it and do not accept it if you are not happy with the package. Check your queen to be sure she is alive when you install the package. Call immediately if you find a dead queen in your package when you are installing your bees. Do not install queen cages with dead queens in them.

Please do not bring back used packages. We can no longer recycle them. You will be asked to take them back home with you.

Hands-on Beekeeping Class

CLASS ON SUNDAY, APRIL 27, WILL BE AT MORRIS ARBORETUM.

Click here for directions to Morris Arboretum. When you arrive at Morris Arboretum on Northwestern Avenue, do not go to the public entrance. Instead, go directly across the road to the Bloomfield Farm entrance and drive through the gate. You will see the bees on your right in the field. You can park in the parking lots or along the side of the drive.

This course is scheduled for five Sunday sessions from February thru July. Only 25 people for each group of classes will be accepted and advance registration is required. Spaces are still available. Give me a call.

The instructor is committed to present a knowledgeable and enjoyable, interactive, and intensively hands-on workshop. We are friendly and encourage you to contact us throughout the course for advice, help, or a sympathetic ear.

Become comfortable opening and working your hives, touch bee’s shoulders to get them to move over, hive a swarm from a crabapple tree, bring your honey to extract on the last class, and inspect hives―there will be hives set up with typical beekeeping problems such as laying workers―and resolve any problems found. All this plus beekeeper camaraderie and tasty appetizers.
