- Please note: Bees will not arrive with us on frames - we will add the package bees to a nuc box on premier wax foundation and new frames
- See picture for bees from our first round of packages in 2020 after a few weeks.
- Available from late April early May
- All coming to us from the same breeder in the Puglia region of Italy.
- Following inspections we are delighted with the results.
- No small hive beetle reported in the region.
- We kept over 100 of these on site for the main part of the season to see how they fared, we only used water and light touch smoke. Excellent results.
There are many benefits to producing and supplying bees from this more temperate area: you will have bees in the UK in time for the early fruiting crops as well as tree pollen, that could help achieve a good start to the season.
They will start to produce and early honey crop long before other local choices of bees.
These bees are characterised by all the normal Buckfast traits, easy to work with, good honey producers with low swarming instincts.
For delivery add £35.00
*This is a weather dependant sale.
When will Package Plus' be available?
