About our beautiful bees for sale:
Gold Star Honeybees are raised treatment-free. What does that mean? It means no chemical treatments.
They are 3-pound packages with naturally mated, unmarked queens.
They are raised on small-cell foundation, making them ideal for all hive types where the bees will make their own wax.
These package honeybees are just fine for other hive types too.
They are "mutt bees" - a very hardy mix of Russian, Italian, and Carniolan genetics.
They are "four season bees" - acclimated to a climate with four seasons and winter hardy!
They are raised in northern Georgia and the great state of Tennessee.
The ship dates are shown as "Week of ..." Typically the bees will get into the mailstream on either Tuesday or Wednesday of the ship week. The bees are shipped directly to your local post office from the beeyard via USPS Priority Mail insured. You will receive a tracking number when they start on their journey to you. They will be shipped "Hold for Pickup" - so you will receive a phone call from your post office asking you to "Come and get your bees!"

My bees came to the UP of MI within 3 days of shipping and very few dead ones. Their price is a little higher than my locals but they seem to be worth every penny. Thanks!!!
Not only were my packages happy and healthy when they arrived, but the post office commented that it was the cleanest, most secure bee package they had ever received. Now if I can get past my beginner mistakes and keep these bees in as good of shape as they arrived, it will be a great season. Thank you, Christy!
