When should I order?

All orders are first come first serve! We apologize, but we sell out every year. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you place your order as soon as possible. The earlier you order Hive(s), the earlier the next spring you get Hive(s). I always start a waiting list in the summer. Please contact us about getting on the list.

Where is the form?

If we still have Hives available, the form is at the bottom of the page. If there is no form at the bottom of this page, we are sold out. You may contact us to see if there is room on the wait list.

What will I receive?

Our bees are Italian mutts. There are many different bees in Jonesboro, GA and they have cross-bred. There are No pure Italian bees any more.

Will the Queen be marked?

The Queen is marked for easy identification in all Complete Hives orders. Marking the queens helps you, the beekeeper, know the age of your queen.
Please Note: Marking is not permanent as the Bees groom each other they will eventually remove the marking.

When will I get my Hive?

Hives have varied delivery dates. Please plan accordingly.
Beekeeping is a form of agriculture and is subject to the whims of Mother Nature.

Hives are ready to be moved/picked-up at dark, because all of the bees are home for the night. Depending upon the season the time can vary from 7:30 to 8:50 pm. Please take Bees straight to their new home. (Anyone selling you a Hive for day pick up is keeping your field bees, and it takes weeks to replace them.)

Can I order for my friends?

Sure, but please realize that if you order Hive(s) YOU are responsible for picking up the bees AND paying for them. If you order Hive(s) for friends and something happens YOU will be obligated to pay for the Hives or the cancellation fee. Thank you all so much for your support and understanding!
