My bees have been treatment free since I began in 2009. This year, the population in my
apiary has “turned the corner”, and I have surplus bees.
Call or email me to arrange details, and to confirm these are still available.

Local Swarms for sale — Waiting list (5 delivered so far in 2015)
$140 each (paid on delivery)
I recommend swarms above package bees because they are healthy enough to reproduce here in the Seattle area. These will be from an unknown history and source. There is no guarantee that I will be able to provide swarms to the waiting list. There is no advanced notice, as swarming depends on situation and location. Swarms are delivered in a cardboard box and should be installed into their permanent home within 18 hours. I want you to succeed, so I’ll help with a 30 minute coaching/consultation session as part of the deal.
