SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU PICK UP YOUR BEES:
**The greatest risk to your bees during transport is over-heating. Bees that are closed in for too long with no ventilation can heat up and collapse within minutes.
-We are not responsible for bees that get over heated once they leave our care.
-All bees sold are in need of larger living quarters right away. Single hives will need a second brood or honey super, and Nucs will need to be installed into waiting 10 frame equipment immediately- DO NOT leave bees in Nuc box as they need space to grow.
-Bring your protective clothing, or arrive early to purchase it from our store.
-The optimum transport is the back of a pickup truck. The bees can be restricted for car transport (at your own risk). We strongly suggest not driving with live bees inside your vehicle, especially with new beekeepers who are not comfortable with bees yet. For your safety, and other drivers safety please transport with pick up truck or a utility trailer.
-Ratchet tie down straps are needed to secure bees in your vehicle.
-For car transport you must bring a sheet or netting to cover the bees.
-We recommend feeding Nucs, especially if they are being installed on un-drawn foundation. Pollen pattie(s) and Sugar Syrup is strongly suggested.
