New Unavailable Package of  Bees With Buckfast Queen

These Packages will be the British  Black Bee 

They consist of 3lb of bees and a caged Mated Queen.

Bees are generally shaken from several colonies to improve queen acceptance.

These can be collected from Barnsley

 

Before you receive your package of bees, you'll need to have an empty hive  ready to install them into. Installation of package bees is pretty simple.

A light sugar syrup is sprayed on the bees through the screen to wet their wings and prevent them from flying too much.

The bees will clean each other up quickly and actually appreciate the extra food to get the hive established. The syrup can is removed, then the bees are simply shaken into the empty hive.

A queen in a separate cage is usually suspended in the package, so this cage is also transferred to the new hive, suspended between the frames.

The workers are attracted to the queen and will cluster around the queen cage thus insuring that the bees stay in the box. In a day or two when things settle down, the queen can be released so she can begin laying eggs.

Available from Late May Onwards

Note: These are collection only and must be collected within a 2 day window.  Uncollected packages will be installed on to frames to create a nuc and if still required the cost of nuc will apply.
