2023 Bee Package
($139 for members ONLY/$166 including new/renewal membership dues)
If you are interested in joining ECB as a new member, you may select the $166 option, but your order will not be complete until you submit the membership application linked here.
We are cooperating with our neighbor beeclub in Brighton to bring bee packages in again this spring - delivery is currently scheduled for late April/early May in Strasburg, Colorado (pending appropriate social distancing plan for delivery day) - you will be notified if that changes.
This is a livestock transport and delivery - more accurate times will be determined and shared as delivery approaches with specific times available on the day of delivery.
We cannot be responsible for packages not picked up on delivery day - if you cannot pick up your bees in a timely manner, please arrange for someone to do so for you. We do not have facilities to store your packages for any length of time.
We are acting to facilitate an arrangement between the carrier and the buyer and are not responsible for any issues with the product. Queens that are dead on arrival (DOA) will be replaced by the carrier, but must be reported ASAP on delivery day.
BEFORE paying, you need to reserve your package by filling out the package order form linked here - package numbers are limited and orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so get yours reserved AND paid for ASAP to ensure your new bees!
Packages are a screened box containing about 3 lbs of bees and an ITALIAN queen.
If paying by cash or check (the option to mail a check is not available as we approach the cutoff for orders), packages are $135 for CURRENT ECB members OR must include $25 annual dues and a completed new membership application - Paypal payments automatically include a surcharge to cover the additional cost of processing the online payment.
So long as the payment is recieved by the order cut-off time (typically the next meeting), package orders may be paid by cash or check at a meeting or by mailing a check to: Eastern Colorado Beekeepers PO Box 772 Strasburg, Colorado 80136.
