Prefer to have your bees professionally installed? Unable to meet Package Bee pickup deadlines, this is a great alternative. Let QRC do the work for you! Available for limited time only, INSTALLED premium quality 3 lb Package Bees with mated Queen. For more than a decade Queen Right Colonies has had a long-lasting relationship with Olivarez Honey Bees, producers of premium package bees and queens. Olivarez Honey Bees has raised bees in Northern California for more than 50 years. The bees are breed to be robust and healthy, as well as excellent pollinators and honey producers. In early spring, the bees pollinate the almond groves in Northern California, which not only helps farmers with this important crop but also provides a nutrient-rich diet to build up the bees. We proudly boast of our committed partnership with OHB to bring the best bees in the country to the east coast region of the United States.

PICK UP Notifications are sent out via email. The Customer is responsible for picking up the INSTALLED package bees. INSTALLED PACKAGE Bees in new equipment MUST remain at QRC until the queen has been accepted and is laying, which takes a minimum of 7 to 10 days from package installation. We will call when your hive is ready and schedule a pickup. Pickups are scheduled during evening hours to insure all field force bees are in the day.
In the event of any unforeseen circumstances QRC reserves the right to change the race of honeybees.
