SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU PICK UP YOUR BEES:
*The entrances on your single hive will be screened in, this screen must be removed immediately when you bring your hive home.
**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.
-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.
-The optimum transport is the back of a pickup truck. The bees can be restricted for car transport (at your own risk).
-For car transport you should consider a sheet or netting to cover the bees, there is always a possibility of flyers getting out inside vehicle.
Travelling with hives inside your vehicle puts the driver at great risk even if they are an experienced beekeeper. We do not recommend bees travel inside cars for the purposes of safety of you and other drivers on the road.
-Ratchet tie down straps are needed to secure bees in your vehicle.
