This is a 3 lb. package of bees with a mated, unmarked CARNIOLAN or ITALIAN QUEEN– (see link for detailed queen information).

We are proud to offer packaged bees made by our beekeeping specialist, Fred Selby. Fred is a second generation beekeeper from Chico, California. The packages include bulk worker bees and a young, mated, unmarked queen. The queen is caged, and the bees are fed sugar syrup from a canister inside the package.

A note about packages:  You are purchasing a mated Italian or Carniolan queen.  The bees accompanying her in the package are bulk bees not related to the queen, and can be a mix of Italian or Carniolan individuals.  You will see the true genetics of your queen expressed in your bees after a few brood cycles have been completed and your hive is established.  (For example, don’t be alarmed if light colored bees are in the package with your dark Carniolan queen!)
