3 Pound Packages Still Available
5 Reasons I love Packages For New Beginners:
  • They are easy to handle and install
  • They are fun to watch grow from 10,000 bees to 40,000
  • A new beginner can grow in knowledge as the hive grows in size
  • A new package is small in the beginning and less intimidating than a full size hive
  • A fun hobby during the boring pandemic

5 Frame Nucs Still Available
5 Reasons I love Nucs:
  • The queen has been accepted and laying
  • There is brood in various stages on frames
  • Simply transfer over your 5 frame nuc into your hive
  • Health certificate from the state of Illinois showing that the nucs are from inspected hives
  • Has a jump in grow compared to a package.

Burns Bees Feeding System
For Spring Feeding

Feed your bees just what they need for spring. Feeding bees from the top is much more effective in the spring when they still may cluster on cooler nights. We recommend adding our 3 additives to your 1:1 sugar water and use on our Burns Bees Feeding System as shown here and in the video below. These sell out fast, so order now while they are still available.
