SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU PICK UP YOUR BEES:
**The greatest risk to your bees during transport is over-heating. A hive that is closed in for too long with no ventilation can heat up and collapse within minutes.
**IT IS OUR POLICY NOT TO BLOCK ENTRANCES. We will place a screen on the entrance AT THE CUSTOMER REQUEST ONLY and the customer assumes ALL RISK. Transport, sealing, taping, or closing bees in any way is the responsibility of the new happy bee owner.
-We are not responsible for bees that get over heated once they leave our care.
-Bring your protective clothing, or arrive early to purchase it from our store.
-It is best to pick them up when the foragers are in house; ie. at dusk when it is cooler, approx. 15-30 minutes before dark (night transport is the best).
-The optimum transport is the back of a pickup truck. The bees can be restricted for car transport (at your own risk).
-Ratchet tie down straps are needed to secure bees in your vehicle.
-For car transport you may wish to bring a sheet or netting to cover the bees.
