About the packages:

  • The bees will be packaged 24 hours in advance of transport, thereby reducing transport stress
  • The queen is from a Canadian mother queen that is picked from the best of her bunch.
  • The Canadian queen is known for her vitality, calmness and honey production.   These characteristics will reflect into the personality of the hive. 
  • There is a greater acceptance of the queen into the hive because the queen is from the offspring of a similar Canadian blood line queen.
  • All the juvenile worker bees in the package are from this Canadian blood line queen.
  • A first year queen is most productive in her first year
  • A calm hive is very important for new beekeepers that are apprehensive about beekeeping.
  • The Bee Bus is easily transportable anywhere in Canada (shipping options available)
  • All worker bees are raised in southern Calgary
  • Packages reduce the risk of cross hive disease contamination
