We double check all hives and nucs prior to marking them ready for pick up
and rarely have issues, but we are human and prone to mistakes and bees are
live animals and prone to change from one day to the next. Therefore we have

colony if we are notified of an issue right away. Waiting more than a week
to report an issue is not considered right away.
Cancellation, Refund and Return Policy:
Honey bees are livestock, therefore they are
subject to conditions and other factors that effect their health such as;
diseases, pesticides, temperatures, etc. and since we have no control over the
conditions the bees are subjected to once they leave our property, we can
not be responsible for incidents or accidents after they leave our
possession. For these reasons, under normal conditions, we recommended hive inspections before
loading and leaving our property and signing off on the order received
However, with COVID-19 safety concerns, we will honor
and respect and waive the pick up day inspections and ask that you please
report any issues within 48 hours of receiving your bees. For anyone that
has a long way to travel, we would prefer to go through the hives before you
leave so in the event of an issue, we can correct it prior to leaving with
Since we must make all necessary arrangements and commitments to secure
everything needed to fill orders, from equipment to reserving bees to
securing queens from preferred out of state breeders, etc., we have the following
