Online ordering is not available. We cannot accept payments over the phone. We accept credit cards at our shop & we can also email you a Paypal invoice. Absolutely no holds on queens unless you’ve pre-paid & you must pick your order up immediately when the queens arrive. Queens should be installed ASAP.

Reserving/Prepaying Queens

The 1st orders we receive in April are usually in high demand. We try to order enough to supply for walk-ins, however, those amounts can sell quickly. It is recommended to prepay/reserve queens.

Generally we are able to receive the desired amounts & types of queens weekly, however, availability issues may arise due to demand, weather, etc. If requested, we can refund your payment if we can’t receive the types/amounts needed when you need them.

Please contact us by phone (304-876-3832), email (info@eversweetapiaries.com) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EversweetApiaries) if you would like to prepay/reserve queens. We can send you a Paypal invoice to pay. Credit card orders not accepted by phone.

Large Orders

Please contact us to reserve/pre-pay for orders of 5 queens or more.


Occasionally, we will place orders for Buckfast queens from Ferguson Apiaries in Canada if there is enough pre-orders. We will need advance notice & payment for your order. We will place an order with Ferguson when 10 or more queens with payment are received. Due to import, shipping, & inspection fees, it is not cost efficient for any parties involved for us to order 10 or less queens.

Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds

If available from breeders, we will place orders for Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds. Please contact us for availability.
