Honey bees can be purchased through a beekeeper and sold in two forms: packages and nucleus colonies. Purchasing bees allows more control over the genetics of the colony, and the ability to select bees with desired traits, such as gentleness or good honey production. Once the package arrives, install the bees into the hive box within 1 to 2 days, or as soon as possible to prevent death. This publication will teach you how to successfully purchase and install honey bees. (2 Pages)
