Carniolan Queen Honey Bees - Shipped

PLEASE NOTE: When starting a new bee hive, you need to purchase a package of bees with a queen, not just a queen. Without the 2 or 3 pounds of worker bees, the queen will not be able to survive and will die.

Click here to read our Queen Honey Bees Terms & Conditions.

All orders of 3 queens or more qualify for free shipping! Free shipped queen orders of 3-9 will be sent out through the USPS. Shipping times vary between 2-3 days, depending on your location. It has been taking an extra day longer in some instances. The queen shipment will be marked to be held at your post office, and they will give you a call at the number that you specify to alert you to come and pick them up. You need to pick them up the day that they call you so the queens survive. Lappe's Bee Supply and Honey Farm is not responsible for any queens that are not picked up in time, or for any queens that are delivered to mailboxes at the customer's request to the post office.

Orders of 10-19 queens will be shipped for free by UPS 2nd Day Air, and orders of 20 or more queens will be shipped for free by UPS Next Day Air.

We can ship by USPS, UPS Next Day Air or UPS 2nd Day Air. All shipped queens are sent out at customer's risk. We can not insure queen honey bees. 

We can mark queens for an additional fee of $4 each. Please let us know which color you would like to have her marked. The International Color for 2019 is green, but if you are only marking her to make it easier to spot her, you can choose whichever color you think would make her easy to find. If you want your queens marked but do not make a color selection, the current year's color will be used.

Queen honey bees cannot survive for long outside of the hive! Your queen needs to be inside of the hive where the bees can feed her and give her water. Please plan on putting your queen into your hive shortly after getting her. Please do not leave queen bees sitting on the counter overnight! 

We recommend placing your queens into your hives as soon as you receive them; it is hard on the queens to leave them sitting for awhile without being inside the hive.

  • Queen is young, naturally mated and unmarked.
  • We DO NOT clip the queens wings.
  • We can only ship queens to the United States at this time; we do not do international shipments for queens.

Place your order online to purchase your queen honey bees. Give us a call at 641-728-4361 or send us an email with any questions that you may have - we are always happy to speak with you! Lappe's Bee Supply and Honey Farms is a 2019 supplier company of queen honey bees for sale and have several listings for different types of queens to buy.

3 Carniolan queens.

Very happy with my purchase. All three of my queens arrived in perfect condition and on time. I will be doing more buisiness in the future. I highly recommend. Thanks Lappes!

We ordered a marked queen and she shipped earlier than expected and so arrived a day early which was great. The website was easy to find exactly what I wanted and checkout was fast. We will definitely use Lappe’s again in the future.

Carnolian Queens

I ordered 2 Queen Carnolians from Lappe's. The queens were shipped (tracking supplied!) on time and arrived when promised. Each queen and her workers were very healthy and ready to work. Both are doing a fine job in their new hives.

New queens

This is my first year bee keeping and I lost A Queen. Yes lost dont know where she went lol. No one local had any. I was so afraid to spend/ was $90 on 3 Queen online but I was desperate . I only needed 1 so I said let me make up a Nuc. And was going to get 2 For the price of shipping 3 is a no brainer . I got them in 2 days after shipped. No dead workers ,all the bees were so lively they look better than the ones I got local in the past. They started laying in 2 day after they came out the cage. I will check them this Saturday to see brood pattern . I give this Queen a A+ at this point
