Bee season is nearly upon us. Whether you’re a pro at keeping bees or new to the hobby/money-making-enterprise, Coastal has what you need to maintain your hives. We can even help you order your bees and get you started with beekeeping gear for beginners and experts.
Order Your Bees Today
Need bees? Pre-order your bees by April 1st, 2019 and get 3 pounds of Mellivo honeybees (about 10,000 of the buzzing insects), with an Italian queen in a separate cage, or choose the 3-pound package with a Carniolan queen. Just need a queen? We can order you one mated Italian queen or one mated Carniolan queen. Delivery scheduled between April 7 – May 7, 2019, weather permitting. If you don’t pre-order, we cannot guarantee bee availability.
Attend Our FREE Online Bee Workshop
Every year, we team up with Mellivo to host a LIVE beekeeping workshop on YouTube. You’re invited to attend this annual workshop on Friday, February 15th at 6:30pm. Beekeeper Justin Brown, the inventor of Apicare to fight bee bacterial naturally, will cover some of the basics of beekeeping, what you need to get started, what to expect in the first year, and answer your beekeeping questions. The online event is free!
