Bees


 It’s time to order Bees for the 2024 Season

Providing a source for locally selected bees was the primary reason we started
Bonnie Bee & Company.
We are pleased to open our order books for  nucleus colonies for this 2024 Spring Season

You may now place your  2024 Nuc order  using the shopping cart below.

First select the size of frames either four-frame Nucs on deep (9 1/8″) sized frames or five-frame Nucs on super / medium (6 1/4″) sized frames

Next, indicate a pickup date April 27, or May 4 , 2024. The Bees will be available for pick up 9 am – 11am in central Marin on these dates and you will need to plan to promptly transport them to your apiary and open them up to fly without delay.
If you would like assistance you may also select from the shopping cart to have your Nuc delivered and installed for an additional fee. We will contact you to schedule.

Please note these mandatory conditions of live sale:
You are responsible for knowing the day you have selected for picking up your bees. Bees that are not picked up on the date selected will be forfeited.
No refunds, cancellations, or date changes after April 1, 2024. You will be charged a $50 fee for cancellations or date changes prior to April 1, 2024.
We reserve the right to postpone pick-up dates if weather delays are a factor in queen mating.

Reminder: Nuc colonies are not compatible with Top Barr Hives or Warre Hives. We do not sell package bees.

A few ideas for alternative bee sourcing options:

– Catch a swarm…or set up a swarm bait hive!  Sign up to receive our newsletter for tips.

– Take a split from a friend’s colony.  Don’t know how?  We can help!

– Come to a Marin County Beekeepers meeting and meet other local beekeepers who may have bees to share.

Thanks for helping to keep our bees local!
