Please note: You will not be personally contacted about bee pickups. We have over 200 different customers each year, therefore we don't have the staff or time to personally contact each customer. Email is very unreliable, with emails often ending up in spam folders.
Here is how we will be communicating with each of you:
We are working on getting a text service implemented. This will allow us to communicate with everyone about bee pickups. We also have a Facebook group page called "The Kansas Bee Company Customers." https://www.facebook.com/groups/554609298742789
For right now, this is our best estimate on when the bees will be ready:
NUC Pickups will more than likely be on Saturday, April 27th, 2024. This is not guaranteed, as weather controls everything in beekeeping. We will definitely keep a clear and open line of communication about bee pickups.
Single Box Hives and Deluxe Beehive Kits are typically the weekend after NUCS - which would be Saturday, May 4th. Again, this is all dependent on weather.
It is imperative that you pick up your bees when they are ready. We cannot hold your bees past the pickup date - no exceptions. This is about getting your bees to their new home, in a timely manner. Our top priority is what's best for the bees, thank you!
There are no refunds for no-shows. Please refer to the FAQ page for our refund policies.
