Product Description:

STOP! Read the following before making your purchase of package bees: Cancellation Notice [Store Policy], Shipping Dates, Shipping Date Changes, Shipping Locations, Shipping Expenses, and Shipping Notices.

Cancellation Notice:  For our full store policy, including our cancellation pollicy, then please read open this link: Store Policies Link

Shipping Dates: Every season the demand for packages of bees continues beyond our normal shipping season. The posted shipping dates quickly sell out, especially premium shipping dates.  We try to accommodate demand by adding more dates near the end of the season.  But as the temperatures begin to soar after mid April, our shipping dates and policies become more stringent.   Any package of bees purchased for a ship date after April 21 will not be replaced nor refunded if it dies during transit.  Neither will any of the other itemized cost on the bill of sale be reimbursed.  

  • It is highly recommended that before you purchase that you analyze your local weather to determine the best possible ship week. 
     
  • The ship date you select is a range of possible ship dates....not arrival dates.   Typically, we ship on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  We only ship our bees via UPS next day air.  Therefore, your packages are likely to arrive on a Wednesday, Thursday, or a Friday.  The night we ship your packages an email notice will be sent to with a tracking number to the email you provide. Read more about shipping notices for more details.
     
  • Please make sure, before you place your order, that you or someone you know can accept the package from UPS upon it's delivery.  

Shipping Date Changes: If you need to change a shipping date, a request must be made at least one week before it's ordered ship date and on our change request form.  We will do our best to make your requested change to an agreeable date.  

Shipping Locations:   To give your package bees the best chance of safe arrival, we recommend that you have them shipped to a location near you that has the earliest possible delivery in the day.   This will reduce their risk to heat exposure during shipment.   Example Location: Your local UPS Distribution Center.  We don't ship package bees outside the United States or to the state of Hawaii.

Shipping Expense:  Read your order details carefully before completing your order.  Double check the total on your order including shipping costs before submitting your payment.  All packages will only be shipped via UPS Next Day Air. The pricing on the packages listed below does not include shipping. The shipping charges are calculated based on your "ship to" location which you provide in the ordering process. If ordering on a smart phone, your screen may go transparent black on check out due to a pop up notification.  Hit the enter button to clear out the notification.

Shipping Notice: We will email you the UPS tracking number late in the evening that the bees ship. Since we hold onto the bees up to 7pm California time the notices will not be availble early on their ship day. All notices will be posted prior to midnight California time on the night they leave. Please check your email frequently on your possible ship dates.

Mike & Ngoc, Nutz N' Honey (Central Texas) - April 26th 2015
I ordered six packages of Italian bees. Everything went extremely well. I was notified when they were shipped and tracked them up to the moment of delivery. Most impressive is the extra care given to packaging the queen and sustaining food. The queens were marked as ordered. The bees were extremely healthy and now after two weeks are very productive. Their system works better than any I have seen in the past. I will use again next year. You can buy with absolute confidence from this seller [...read more]

(Pine, Arizona) - April 19th 2015
This is the third package of bees I've ordered through the mail and by far the best experience. In the future Noble will be the only supplier I will order from. The first package I ordered from a different supplier arrived dead, then the second package arrived with a lot of cold and dead bees covered in syrup; however, enough did survive to produce a colony in the long run. Noble's packages are very well thought out to ensure excellent ventilation and the feed is in the form of a paste that c [...read more]

My bees where shaken yesterday, and arrived today at 10 am.
The package is seminal in it's simplicity and efficiency. I called to and was told to make several pin holes in the lid for a quick syrup feeding of DiluTE syrup. (Poured out 3/4 of 1to1 syrup then back-fill with plain water)
!There was no struggle with the syrup can, there isn't one.
OK, here's the really incredible part. Having installed packages before I am used to having up to an 1 1/2ins of dead bees at the b [...read more]

Package arrived last Thursday morning. Installed the Bee's and Queen in their new home that afternoon. By Saturday morning they had settled in and started housekeeping and starting to bring in nectar and pollen. I believe I'm going to be well pleased with these girl's.

The bees arrived healthy and quickly. They were well packaged with lots of food to make the trip. Questions I had as a new beekeeper were enthusiastically answered in the hope that I would succeed. I did!

Thanks for all your help.
