  • 1st class ride to Denver.  Temperature controlled, fans, water mist, air ride, and a 72 hour turn around from when they were removed from the hive.  We are the only company in Colorado that has this type of transportation.  It's the least we can do for the girls.

  • Last year we sold just over 2000 starter hives.  We feel we provided a wonderful service to keepers in the Rocky Mts.  We are very experience, and do an excellent job.  Are we pros?  If there ever was a title I someday hope to achieve it with a track record to boot.
  • Every year we deliver a high quality bee package.  We love the bees.  We love helping people get started in beekeeping.

Packages Bees Delivered to Denver(Littleton)April 28th 9AM TO BEE or NOT to BEE


Product Description


Saturday, April 28th we will have a limited supply of 3 Lbs bees with a Spring Italian/Carniolan Queen Delivered to Denver, (Littleton) Colorado. To the Bee Supply store known as To BEE or not to BEE.  We have been using the sisters of these queens in our own operation.  They are strong, hygienic, and great honey producers.  Although we breed for gentleness we just can't guarantee that behavior. :)

What comes with a Packages of Bees

  • 3Lbs of bees
  • One newly mated Spring queen protected in a queen cage (learn more about what queens are being used this year)
  • One screened cage
  • One 20 oz. can of liquid feed (this feeds the bees while in transit)
  • Price includes cage, delivery, and we will replace any expired queens completely complementary.

How we do it

We hand shake these bees from very strong and healthy colonies of honey bees.  We then add a spring queen to this swarm of bees.  We quickly load them on our truck and deliver them to you at a predetermined location downtown Denver.  We try our best to have shaken the bees and deliver within 72 hours.  It's our experience that pays off with quality bee packages from Apis Hive Co.  Your welcome to view our 3 minute package making video here.


Why should I buy from Apis Hive & Honey Co.?

Apis Hive & Honey is a Colorado based bee keeping business.  We've been providing bees to the whole State of Colorado and Utah for many years.  We are now taking orders for package bees.  Timing is important and supply is limited.  We hand shake these 3# pound package of bees.  Included in the package is a Italian queen. 

When considering how stressed a colony of bees can become, we deliver your bees to our drop points.  Our nonstop, two driver, temperature controlled trailer gives the bees the least stress possible.  We do our best to make sure the bees have a limited time in the package.  In most cases as little as 72 hours. If you need to replace, grow, or get started in beekeeping a three pound package of bees is the most common way. We pick the best, breed the best, and make the best.  Apis Hive and Honey & Co. can help you get started.
