You MUST be at pickup to get your bees or send someone to pickup your bee package. We cannot hold onto bee packages, these are live creatures and need to be put into a hive right away after pickup

We always attempt a pickup day that best supports the bees during spring weather fluctuations. Prairie Wind Bee Supply or BackYardHive.com are not liable or responsible for anything after the bees are picked up. We will provide information on installing the bees at our classes and our emails.

Note to mountain folks:
Remember that bee packages do not normally do well for the higher elevations since they come mid to late April and the weather is not warm enough for a package of bees that will not have comb built out yet to keep themselves warm in April temperatures.

Email Contact Us if you are wanting more than one package and we will put on the reserve list.

Limit one package per person we have a limited number of packages.
