 About the bees:

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.  We just prefer not to use foundation.  Here's more information on why we feel that way.

They are "mutt bees" - a very hardy mix of Russian, Italian, and Carniolan genetics.  This makes them:  easy-going, industrious, and winter-hardy with a touch of Varroa Sensitive Hygiene or VSH.  More detail about VSH can be found here.

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.
