MARCH SPECIAL: “Starter” BEES and HIVE – Wax Dipped Equipment – April and May (marked 2023 Italian queen) – ends March 19


Pay a deposit of $100.00 per item

SKU: N/A Category:


This offer ends March 19. This is for a starter Italian “double deep” OR “triple medium” hive setup (your choice of 8 frame or 10 frame) including all the basics to get started, including bees, marked queen, and a minimum of 4 frames that will have drawn combs with resources! If you are going with all mediums, simply select that option when you are ordering, and we will change the setup to 3 medium boxes. This takes the risk and guess work out of installing a package of bees and getting them started! CARLISLE OR NICHOLSON, PA PICKUP ONLY, begins in late April for Carlisle (approximately May 13 for Nicholson). A 2023 early April package of bees with a 2023 mated Italian queen will already be installed in your equipment in early April. We will manage your colony’s initial growth, build it up, check for mites, and mark the queen in April. This setup is actually wax dipped for a length of time at high temperature, not wax coated or quickly dipped like some products. Included in this special offer:

  • 2 Deep* Hive Bodies – your choice of 8 or 10 frame (wax dipped, no maintenance!)
  • Solid bottom board (wax dipped)
  • Migratory style flat lid with 70mm feeder hole (lid made from “cheese board” which holds up well)
  • Entrance reducer
  • Wood frames with waxed plastic foundation, 1 will be a green plastic drone frame
  • 1 quart plastic jar feeder that fits hole on lid, plus lid to cap hole when not in use
  • *3 Medium setup option available
  • Option to change the queen to a “PA Carniolan” queen in July or August at a 50% discount ($20)–simply request this early in the summer.
