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.

All orders of 3 queens or more qualify for free shipping! Free shipped queen orders of 3-19 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. Orders of 20 or more queens will be shipped by UPS Next Day Air. Click here to read our Queen Honey Bees Terms & Conditions.

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 2018 is red, 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.

Place your order online to purchase your queen honey bees. Give us a call or send us an email with any questions that you may have - we are always happy to speak with you!

Happy queens

I have ordered from lappes bee supplies a number of times and am always very happy with the service and products. I just ordered and received 3 queen bees with workers. I overnighted them. They looked healthy and ready to go into my hives. The packages were candy filled which made the release process painless.

Carni Queen

First off ordering was simple and easy. Customer service was excellent. The 3 queens arrived packaged very good and the queens were in great health. All 3 were accepted within 3 days. I looked at my frames on day 5 and fresh eggs were laid in all the open cells. They dont waste time. I'll definitely order again from Lappes.

Queen arrived well packaged and healthy. Nicely marked for me. Ended up not needing her but able to give to my Master Bee Keeper and he placed in a nuk. She is doing well despite having gone through the gauntlet with my failed package. Tough stock! Would purchase again.

Carniolan Queens

The queens were shipped as promised and arrived in good condition. After properly introducing them to their new hives they were accepted and are demonstrating good laying properties.

Excellent company to do business with. Ordered ten queens. I requested special handling instructions and they were happy to accommodate me. Very prompt and professional. I would highly recommend.
