Swarms will cost approximately $125-$150 upon pickup. Due to the overwhelming demand, we can only supply one swarm per person.
Sign up for a local honey bee swarm to populate your hive of choice in 2014. Swarms will be caught in the Portland, Oregon metro area, usually beginning in early April through early July. In 2013, we caught over 75 swarms, but were still unable to get bees to all of those on the list.
We cannot guarantee we'll be able to get a swarm for you, but we'll try our best! If you want to guarantee you'll receive bees in spring 2014, consider ordering our package bees.
We'll reach out to you when we're getting close to your number in the queue to confirm that you still want bees. If you do, we prefer to put them directly into your hive so no transfer needs to take place.
