Please select your dispatch day when you order.
Queens are sent for next day delivery and need to be signed for so please ensure someone is in to sign. If you wish to collect, collection can take place on that dispatch day, or the following day only.
Normally available May-Sept (season dependent).
IF YOU ARE WISHING FOR YOUR QUEENS TO BE POSTED, PLEASE ORDER THEM SEPARATELY FROM ANY OTHER ITEMS
Queens posted standard post are only replaced if DOA is notified within 24hrs of our posting them. We are not responsible for delays in Royal Mail postage. Although there is rarely a problem, we recommend the recorded post option to minimise delays.
Please also note: you cannot start a colony with a Queen only, you need a nucleus or full colony of Bees. Introducing a Queen into a colony is never 100% successful, we are not responsible if your Queen is not accepted and is killed or goes 'Missing' during the introduction stage.
