Bees in Packages: Pick-up Santa Clarita

  • $ 20000

Package Bees: 3 lbs of Italian honey bees in a screened cage with VSH Italian mated & marked queen in a separate screened queen cage. The known gentle genetics of these Italian Honey Bees make them ideal for Backyard Beekeeping in Los Angeles. Packages can be installed in any style hive. We use and recommend Langstroth hives.

The VSH-Italian queen bee is raised and naturally mated in isolated Northern, CA where there are no Africanized genetics ensuring gentle behaving offspring. Yes, they can still sting.
