In April, we drive South to Georgia and pick up package honeybees for beekeepers located in Northern New England. Typically we truck between 800 and 900 packages that are provided by Gardner’s Apiaries A few weeks later Wilbanks' makes a delivery of a few hundred packages to fill later orders..
The packages are available sometime in mid April and mid May, exact dates varying year to year dependent upon weather conditions. These dates will be posted on the home page of our website as well as in product description and updated as necessary.. This information will also be available by calling our office.
All items ordered on this site must be picked up at the B-Line Apiaries address between 8 AM and 8 PM. Phone confirmation is requested for all items excluding package bees which must be retrieved on dates specified.
Customers are advised to check the status of arrival on a regular basis as dates can change depending on weather at the suppliers location.
We also try to have queens available for purchase the full honey production season.
