Package bee order and summertime nucs

ORDER STATUS

Overwintered colonies - dispatched to customers
package bees              - SOLD OUT - ready end of May
Summertime nucs       - SOLD OUT, ready Mid June Onwards.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the overwintered colony collection days, it went very smoothly and we appreciate everyones patience over the past few weeks.   Hope you all have a great beekeeping season.

Next up - Package Bees!   We are looking at the very end of May before they will be ready.  Spring has been cold and the bees have been very slow in building up.   We had to delay the overwintered nucs by a few weeks from our pencilled in dates and the same will happen with the packages.   The downside to using British bees in our packages - we are reliant on the British weather :)

Summertime nucs - Due to be ready mid to end of June.   We are already busy making and preparing them, we just need to let the queens settle in and build up in size again.
