New Swarm Traps For Sale
Start catching FREE BEES in your own back yard today!
Every year people ask if I will sell them one of my swarm traps after I tell them I have caught 100+ swarms the past 4 years. I have always said "no they are not for sale". Well, that is changing starting spring 2021. I will start making swarm traps and have them for sale starting in March. If you would like to order add to your cart below. The traps will be fully assembled, and all you will need to do is paint, add your
frames, and lure. Then you'll be ready to start catching FREE BEES!

Our Locally Produced Queens
Here we are inspecting a grafted frame 24 hours after
placing larva into a queenless starter hive.
Capped Queen Cells Going To Incubator
Our queens are grafted for specific traits and characteristics.
Our breeder queens are selected based on the hives performance
in survivability, brood rearing, honey production and gentleness.
Our BEAR Incubator
Here is a picture of the incubator we use after the queen
cells are capped awaiting placement into Nucs,
queen-less hives and queen castles for mating.
Picture 1: These are queen cells being removed from a finisher hive on their way to the incubator.
Picture 2: After a queen is mated and has started laying, she is marked for easy identification.
Picture 3: Newly made up queen mating nucs awaiting the placement of their queen cells.

5 Frame Deep Nucs
Nucs that are ready for new home's.
The Nuc's have 5 deep frames with a laying queen,
3-4 frames of brood with the remainder being honey/pollen.
3 Frame Mating Nucs
In the spring of 2019 we added 50 3-Frame deep
mating Nucs. They have helped increase the number
of queens we can produce. Along with the queen
castles and over 50 5-Frame Nuc boxes we are set
to help meet some of the local need for queens.
