Package bees are still on schedule to be picked up Monday, April 13th. We will be open on 4/13 from 9AM – 6PM. Tuesday – Friday we will be open 12PM – 5PM. Please make arrangements to pick your package(s) up promptly. They need to be installed as soon as possible.
We can allow only two persons in the shop at a time to pick out their package(s). Please make your selection quickly as there will be other customers waiting outside to pick out theirs. For customers waiting outside for their turn, please keep 6 feet apart from other customers.
Please make purchases in advance of Mon. 4/13. In an effort to move customers and packages out quickly, we will not be selling merchandise on Monday 4/13. In addition, we will not be able to answer questions about the packages (installation, care, etc.). Please call (304-876-3832) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with those questions. You can also refer to our free “2020 Beekeeping Guide” (https://www.eversweetapiaries.com/2020_Eversweet_Beekeeping_Guide.pdf); “Package Installation” page 24-25 & “Package Care and Maintenance” page 25.
Nucs are still scheduled to be ready for sometime at the beginning-mid May.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience!

Pick-up only; shipping not available. Estimated pick-up date is April 13, 2020. Please be aware this date could change due to weather or supplier inventory conditions. If pick-up date changes and is not convenient for you, we can refund your payment.
We cannot accept payments over the phone.

This shipment will sell-out quickly. We will not be ordering extra packages. Please reserve your order ASAP.
Please be aware that since we do not make the packages, we can not guarantee anything regarding the quality of the package bees or their queens. Refunds can not be given for dead bees or queens. We allow customers to pick the packages that look best to them. Packages need to be picked up promptly & installed as soon as possible to prevent bee death.
Due to packages requiring more maintenance & beekeeping knowledge sometimes, we do not recommend packages to beginner beekeepers.
