Italian queen honey bee, open-mated, in shipping cage with attendants.
To ensure the survival of the bees in transit, the only shipping method is UPS Overnight.
Of course, pickup at the Monastery is also available.
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 UPS. Please save your Postage confirmation and postage meter sticker to assist the Postmaster with filing a claim. UPS claims must be filed online. The customer should take pictures of the loss, to help substantiate the claim with the UPS. Additionally, the UPS 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.
