We do have a waiting list for bees. We have extra packages and nucs on each load to cover any that do not pass inspection. If the loads travel well, those extras will become available to those on the waiting list. We will also have some splits available from our own hives a little later in the season. To be put on the waiting list, please send an email with the subject "waiting list" to email@example.com. Include in the message what you are interested in (packages, nucs, starter hive), the best phone numbers to reach you, and your email address. If you have no preferences on whether they come in a package, nuc, or hive, you will have the best chance of getting bees. Example: If you say you want a nuc, we will not call you about packages or starter hives. When we have extra packaged bees, I will call the 1st person on the waiting list. If I can not reach anyone, I will have to go to the next person on the list because packages need to be picked up as soon as possible. I have a little more time to find homes for nucs and splits, so I will send an email, call, and give you time to call me back.

We are now taking orders for Russian and Carniolan nucs to be available for pickup between mid-April and early May. The nucs will be $175. These will be Missouri raised bees, so we won't know the delivery date until we see how spring progresses. Orders are not confirmed until full payment is received. Bees are the only item that requires pre-payment. You will not get a refund if you fail to pick up your bees.
We are taking orders for packaged bees available for early April thru mid-May pickup. They will be 3 lb. packages with mated queens. The 1st shipment will have Italians and Carniolans and is scheduled for the 1st week of April. The other shipments will arrive here between mid-April to mid-May. We can get them with Carniolan or Russian queens. The packages will be $138 each plus tax. All our bees will be from north of the 36th parallel, nothing from the southern states (southern bees are not well acclimated to our winters and have more risk of hive beetles and Africanization). Please give us a call at (660) 214-0132, if you wish to place an order. Orders are not confirmed until full payment is received. Bees are the only item that requires pre-payment. You will not get a refund if you fail to pick up your bees.
