The packaged bees are traveling from New Zealand, and we expect them to arrive on the dates listed, however due to unforeseen circumstances this can change. Customers will be notified by eCommerce along the way of any changes or updates to transportation or delivery of the bees.


Why can I only pick these up at certain locations?

Safety is our #1 priority. The Bees ship with feed to our chosen destinations. Customers will have to drive to the pickup location of their choice to ensure bees are received within a time limit that allows for continued safety.


Where do these bees come from?

The packaged bees ship from New Zealand. They ship to Vancouver on a direct flight and then stop at several destinations across Canada.


Can we buy American Honey Bees?

No. Laws prevent importing Honey Bees from the USA.


How many bees am I getting?

The packaged bees include a 1.5kg package of Honey Bees which will include roughly 10,000 bees and 1 queen.


How do I know I received a queen?

Our Bees are shipped on #1 transportation carriers to our stores across Canada. The truck is climate controlled and checked on frequently by beekeepers who travel with the bees. Bee boxes are shipped with feed to last the trip across the world.

Peavey Industries LP (Peavey Mart & Mainstreet Hardware) have steps in place to ensure safety of any live animal we sell. Good Animal husbandry is in everyone’s best interest. If buying Honey Bees we strongly recommend you have an industry mentor or have taken training courses. Buying bees is at your own risk - please check to ensure you are legally allowed to have Honey Bees where you live.
