We are located about a half hour southwest of downtown San Antonio just outside of Somerset, TX.

However, we do not have a store for "walk in shopping" at this time. Since we are a bee farming operation and work our bees at multiple locations, we take orders via the website and arrange for pickup on scheduled pickup dates.

Oxalic Acid and Formic Acid are both "organic" options and are available online from a variety of sources. Our sources are limited at this time, so we defer you to Mann Lake for these as well as the new version of HopGuard.
Meanwhile we still carry a supply of the Apivar strips and should have plenty in stock and available throughout the spring season. Please order below to add to your order for pick up with bees this year.

Apivar

Apivar® is packaged in vacuum-sealed foil pouches. A single application of two strips per brood chamber is sufficient to treat a hive, so you spend less time and effort treating your bees, and there is less disruption of the bees than with many other treatments. Strips are not individually wrapped and must be used within 2 weeks after opening.

North American Beekeepers Now Have an Effective Amitraz-Based Weapon Against Varroa Mites!

  • Continuously released in the colony over a six-week period, ensuring healthy and productive hives
  • Proven safe and effective for more than 15 years
  • Leaves no significant residues in hive products

Apivar Dramatically Cuts Mite Population

A study conducted by the research arm of the USDA in the spring of 2012 shows that Apivar® was responsible for a 52 - fold drop in mite population compared to an untreated hive. This demonstrates the effectiveness of Apivar's® controlled - release technology.

Beekeeping Supplies and Products Are Local Pick Up Only (at this time) Except Special Orders

Shipping or delivery arrangements may be made with minimum orders and certain products.

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 the following policy and will replace or exchange a 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 documents.
    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 your order.
     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 cancellation policy:

Cancellation of Orders: All cancellations for refunds must be requested in writing within seven (7) days from the time the order is placed. A 10% processing fee will be applied to all cancellation requests filled after the seventh day of the order and will be processed as time permits.

Returns for Supplies and Gear: If there is any issue with any equipment, supplies or gear, please let us know within seven (7) days of the receipt of the product and we will arrange for an exchange. All requests for a refund filled after this time are subject to a 10% restocking fee.
