Taking Orders for 2016


Single Hive with Bees*





Our Single Hive with Bees is an 8 or 10 frame hive body with a fall queen,  Frames are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), and pollen. Most frames are fully drawn and full.   


When our bees are finished pollinating almonds in CA in mid March we move them into orange groves.  We place a queen excluder between the two hive bodies.  After one week we look for the hive body that the queen is laying in.  We remove this hive body, put on a temporary transportation top and bottom and deliver these hives to select locations across the southwest.  You can meet the truck at the location or if you are not able to pickup on that date a caretaker will hold the hive for you.  We are making special arrangements to have a caretaker at each location.


These queens are a fall 2015 queen.  It is difficult to get current season queens before May 1st.  All queens have bee committed for years by the commercial queen breeders to their package bee production and to major beekeepers.  We have had problems in the past getting queens intime to prevent our hives from swarming.  By dividing this way we can get deliveries out early in the season.  Our queens are installed in the fall which is best for the development of the hive for both fall, winter and spring.  Beekeepers should requeen in late summer and fall every year to prevent early spring swarming.


We have taken most of the risk out of developing a hive of bees for you and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.  


When installing package bees there is a risk that the bees will act like a swarm and leave the hive after a few days.  With the presence of open brood the bees will not leave.  You do not need to transfer these bees into any other equipment.  This hive will expand on its' own with proper food resources.  These hives are delivered with a special top and bottom board for easy transportation with out endangering the hive of bees.  When you reach the location where you are setting up your bees just remove these two covers and place on your bottom board and put your top cover on the hive.  The frames in this hive have been arranged for optimum hive expansion.  NOTE:  You will need a second and third super as this is an actively growing hive (depending on food resources and hive management).

Max's Bees Part 1


This is a video about a Top Bar Hive that has turned aggressive.  It is moved to a remote location and the honey and brood removed and the hive prepared to be converted to a Langstroth Hive and given a new queen.


Max's Bees Part 2


This is a continution of Part 1.  We cannot find the queen so a queen excluder is attached to the bottom of the super, elevated and the bees shaken in front of the hive.  We are preparing it to receive a new queen.


Max's Bees 3 

This is a continution of Part 1 & 2.  We have prepared the hive it to receive a new queen.  A queen is not available so we have taken a frame of eggs and young larva from a 2012 Carniolan Breeder queen and will insert it in the brood nest and then give the hive a 50/50 sugar water to help it get started.
