All headed by our Northumberland Queens.

Colony Strength

These colonies will be occupying a full single brood box, with at least 6-7 frames of brood plus stores. A much stronger offering than a nucleus colony. Colonies also come complete with floor, brood box, cover board and roof.

 

Collection Time

Colonies of bees can only be collected. The collection dates / times to choose are the earliest dates we will be releasing the colonies for collection.

 

Queens

Queens are all supplied marked and clipped.

 

Payment

Full payment is due at the time of booking. We anticipate these colonies to be reserved quickly. If wishing to purchase all the colonies available, please contact us to discuss deposit, otherwise for single colonies full payment is required to reserve the colony.

 

Transporting your bees home

Please note colonies will need to be collected either early in the morning or late evening to ensure they travel well.

Colonies will be readied for collection from our premises in Haltwhistle

Northumberland Honey Co, Unit 6C, Haltwhistle Industrial Estate, Haltwhistle, Northumberland, NE49 9HA.

Please remember a beesuit, gloves, smoker and a ratchet strap or hive strap to secure the nucleus box in your vehicle, once you are transporting the bees they are entirely your responsibility.

A risky period of time is transporting bees, it is your responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is well ventilated and kept cool and you pick up at the designated time. In this way you can best avoid killing the bees or queen due to overheating. Please also ensure the mesh on the nuc boxes is not blocked when placing the boxes in your car. Frames should also run front to back in the direction of travel to avoid the frames moving back and forth when accelerating and braking as this would increase the risk of bees and importantly the queen being squashed between frames

 

GUARANTEES

Bees require knowledge and experience to look after and thrive. There is always a risk with swarming/ absconding, diseases and feeding issues.

We guarantee queens from being drone layers for the first 14 days during which time we would have expected the first inspection to have taken place. After this period of time has elapsed any problems will be assessed by us on a case by case basis. There will be no liability for beekeeping related issues but we will always help where we can.
