Nuc Status as of May 7th; I am making nucs as we speak and things are going well. But understand that this is not an immediate process. The queens need to hatch and then mate, this takes at least two weeks. I then want them to lay for at least a week to insure the quality of the queens. This is the timing you need to expect if you want locally grown queens. I will be sending emails as soon as they are ready. Nuc orders will be filled in the order that they were placed. If I were to give an approximate date, the first ones will be ready around the end of May. These nucs will be worth the wait so please be patient.
Second load (formerly May 3 then May 17) is now May 24th Sold out I do not have a time for pick up at this point. I am waiting for the driver to give me his plans. I will post the pick up times for both Larchmont and Hampton locations when I have more info.
Final load ( formerly May 16 then May 31) is now June 7 I still have plenty available. Please email me email@example.com to request your packages.
Once again, We have booked three loads of 3# packages from Wilbanks Apiaries in Claxton, Georgia! For three generations, the Wilbanks Family has built a reputation as one of the premiere providers of package bees in the country and Charlene and I are proud to represent them in the Northeast! This is our twelfth season selling package bees and we have three dates. For beginners, a 3# package contains approximately 10,000 worker bees, a mated queen and a feeder can to sustain them during shipment. Package bees are suitable for installation in all styles of hives.
The first load has come and gone, thank you to all! I still have packages available for the June 7th load. These are the last package bees that will be available in the Northeast this season.

Attention New York State, South Western Ct and New Jersey beekeepers; The truck will make one stop on each of the first two loads in Larchmont, NY. You will be able to pick up your packages there and save a trip to Hampton CT. Anyone expecting to pick up packages in Larchmont must contact me no later than 10 days prior to the delivery date to arrange for them to be dropped off in NY. There will be no extras left and no changes will be allowed after ten days prior to the delivery dates. I will be rigid about this as late changes always become a nightmare! Please plan ahead. Also understand that there will be no equipment for sale in Larchmont.
This season, we are also proud to be offering five frame nucs in May. These nucs will be made up from our own bees and the Queens will be raised from our own Survivor stock here in Connecticut! Order early as we will sell out quickly. For beginners, a nuc is short for nucleus colony. They contain at least three deep frames of brood, one deep frame of food stores and a fifth deep frame that will contain some food stores and room for the queen to continue laying. The queen will be hatched, accepted, mated and will be laying in your nuc. This eliminates problems with queen acceptance that beginners sometimes experience. NOTE, NUCS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR INSTALLATION IN TOP BAR OR WARRE STYLE HIVES! THESE FRAMES WILL ONLY FIT IN 8 OR 10 FRAME DEEP LANGSTROTH TYPE HIVES! ALL NUCS ARE SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON
All package bees will need to be picked up here at my home Apiary located at 143 South Brook Rd, Hampton, CT. or at 1048 Palmer Ave, Larchmont NY. (See note above about Larchmont location). Nucs will be available for pickup only in Hampton CT. WE DO NOT SHIP BEES DUE TO POOR SERVICE FROM THE POST OFFICE!

All package bees sold by A&Z Apiaries come from bees inspected by the State of Georgia and found to be apparently free of disease and parasites. The State of Connecticut recognizes these inspections. The five frame nucs will be produced from bees inspected by the State of CT and found to be apparently free of diseases and parasites. Do to natural defensive qualities of honey bees, we can not guarantee bees to be free from aggressive tendencies nor can we assure anyone that these bees do not have small populations of Varroamites or Small Hive Beetles.
All bees sold by A&Z Apiaries will come with appropriate installation and starting instructions that we have successfully used for decades. Understand however, that due to varying methods and skill levels of different beekeepers, we do not guarantee acceptance of queens. If you believe that you have a better way, by all means use that method.

New and out of state customers will be required to send a 50% non refundable deposit with the balance due at pick up. We are now accepting reservations.
Production of package bees and nucs is dependant upon the weather and therefor, no matter how hard we try to maintain them, dates are subject to change depending upon the Spring conditions.

I will try to email everyone effected by changes but it is your responsibility to check this page as the dates approach.
