04/15/20 is the order cutoff for our first pickup in May. All orders after that date will be set for our second pickup in May.
If you've already placed your order for bees, that does not mean you can move your pickup to later in May. The bees you ordered are being made for YOU to pickup as soon as they are ready. Every year a few people try to push off the pickups to fit their schedule. This is not about your schedule or my schedule. This is about getting the BEES into their hives or adding additional hive boxes in time. This is about the BEES schedule. Thank you!
We have a little over 1 month to go before pickups will start and pickups are NOT going to be cancelled! Bees, suits, equipment...everything has been purchased for your NUC or Kit!
If we have to stagger pickup times to be compliant with social distancing, we will do that. If we have to do a drive-thru pickup in a parking lot somewhere, we will do that! We will make this work, so please bee patient and think about your amazing bees you will have this year! Thank you for your understanding!
Pickups are in Belton, Missouri!
Pickup dates aren't set just yet. We always try for the first weekend of May, but it all depends on weather and when you order your bees!
Please watch the website for updates on the pickup dates!
Inside the Hive Class schedules will be set once the bee pickup dates are set, as they go together. We will run the class in groups of 7-10, so that you can get more of a personalized class.
Transporting BEES: Bring a truck! Bring a ratchet strap! We will be attaching your boxes to your bottom board and putting a screen into all your entrances for your ride home You will look at your bees before you leave, no exceptions, so please bring your protective gear!
If you do show up in a car, you will be responsible for loading your bees into your car. We will not assist you in this process, and we are not liable if something happens on your drive home.
We do not ship bees or equipment!
