Menunkatuck Audubon Society is pleased to be offering bee packages for sale for the upcomin 2018 season! Pre-orders are now being accepted. It is important to order months ahead of arrival to reserve your package.
The 3 lb package contains 3 lb of honey bees and one queen along with a can of sugar water which can last a few days. You have the option of purchasing a package with an unmarked queen or a marked queen. The marked option is slightly more expensive, but is very nice to have in order to more easily to be able locate your queen when inspecting the hive.
An experienced beekeeper sometimes wants to replace a queen in an existing hive at the beginning of the season. This is because queens can become worn out after a couple of years and/or through the winter. A new queen will ensure a great start to the season and continued success with the colony.
Your purchase of package bees from Menunkatuck Audubon Society benefits our 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and all the conservation activities we engage in to assist in the health of our environment.
