BEES FOR SALE!

Nucs, Packages, and Queens

We are now taking orders for NUCS, PACKAGES, and QUEENS for Spring 2020.  Be sure to order early, in the past we have been fully booked by the end of March.

 

Price List for 2020

Nucs or Packages $150

Queens $35 (1-9), $30 (10-24), $28 (25 or more) 

 

Please Call 541-934-9101 or Email apricotapiaries@gmail.com to be placed on our list.  Let us know your name, phone number, email, and the number of nucs, packages, or queens you would like, and where you are located.

 

We aim to have our nuc and package orders ready by mid-late May.  Timing of availability is dependent on how good our spring weather is for queen rearing.  We hope for some 70+ degree days by the end of April so our queens can get some mating flights in. 

Pick up for nucs and packages will be in Kimberly on scheduled dates as available.  We will also be providing a central Oregon delivery with morning pick up, dates TBD.  If it is a warm day please plan to arrive on the early side.  

Queens can be shipped in Oregon via USPS (2 day) or UPS (overnight).
