CLICK HERE FOR INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS – A HARD COPY WILL BE PROVIDED UPON PICK-UP

Be sure to have your hive equipment assembled, painted, and ready for your bees.  You will also need some sugar syrup made ahead of time (cooled to room temperature) to feed your bees once they are installed in the hive.  You can view our sugar syrup tutorial here.  Protein patties are also a good addition – your bees have no pollen or honey in reserve. Full instructions detailing how to install your bees and hang the queen cage will be provided when you pick up your bees.  

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARRIVE

Upon your arrival, enter our store through the main doors and check-in at our floral counter located on the south side of our store. We’ll ask for your name to find your order, and then send you out to get your bees.
