Bees are typically available to pick up AFTER the first week in May in Maine. WE CALL, TEXT, AND OR EMAIL EVERYONE TO COME GET BEES. Some customers have ordered back in November they get bees first.
Weather plays a large roll in when your bees are ready.
We we know everyone wants their bees immediately and we do our best to have them ready as quick as we can.
We have many stops along the East coast. They are not always on a weekend, however we “try” to make that happen to a degree.
Deliveries can be sooner than the pickups in Maine but will mostly always be in May. Again you will be notified with as much warning as possible but sometimes it’s short notice and we apologize. Bee ready!!
Weather, Traffic, and waiting for people to show up at spots are all HUGE delays. The last one can be avoided by you being at the spot waiting for us. We send out our tracking information on the truck to you directly and you can pin point our vehicle as we drive towards you. Adjust your trip so you are at the pick up spot ahead of time.
