Losing your hive to varroa mites or winter losses is no fun and can leave you scrambling at the last minute to buy bees in the spring. We have a limited number of spots available on the semi trucks that take our bees south to Texas for overwintering in early November. This service also includes 3 key benefits for the backyard beekeeper and his/her bees in Central MN:
Send your hive along with professional beekeepers to winter with our bees and leave the stress of wintering hassles and uncertainty to us. Plus you get a new hive of bees back in the spring that's worth $150 already installed and brooding up in your equipment!
The following conditions must be met to qualify your hive for this service.
Note: we winter in north east Texas where the land is partially wooded and is used for cattle pasture and gas wells. The area is free of agricultural pesticides and intensive agriculture. Also we don't rent our bees for pollination services in Texas or anywhere over winter, and your hives will NOT be used for this kind of activity while under our control.
