Italian queen honey bee, open-mated, in shipping cage with attendants.
To ensure the survival of the bees in transit, the only shipping methods available are express options (i.e. Priority Mail Express and UPS Next Day Air). Local pickup is also available for local customers.
Weather can cause delays in shipments. When delays happen, we will contact you with your new shipping date.
All queen shipment orders are F.O.B. It is the responsibility of the customer to file a claim immediately with the USPS or UPS. Please save your Postage confirmation and postage meter sticker to assist the Postmaster with filing a claim. USPS or UPS claims must be filed online. The customer should take pictures of the loss, to help substantiate the claim with the USPS. Additionally, the USPS should scan the package as “damaged in shipment”. We cannot certify or process a claim because we were not there to personally inspect the bee shipment.

Due to the severe ice storms of February 11th & 15th, the monastery has been without power, phones and internet for a prolonged period of time. This will likely continue for the indefinite future due to the severe damage from the storm throughout the entire region.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however the process is very slow since we need to drive hours to town to download the orders, return to the monastery to print them off and package them, and then drive back into town to ship them since no mail or shipping services are able to reach us. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
Please pray for us!
