Carniolan Queens - Shipped By USPS

We will sell Carniolan queens again next spring 2018.

We ship our queens by USPS Priority Mail. The shipping quote will show UPS; however, we are currently unable to change this in our system. All orders of 3 queens or more qualify for free shipping! Please choose your shipping week and day; we only ship queens out on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Shipping times vary between 2-3 days, depending on your location. It has been taking an extra day longer in some instances.

     We can ship by UPS Next Day Air or UPS 2nd Day Air. Please call us at (641) 728-4361 to place your orders for UPS delivery. We can tell you the exact cost of shipping at the time your order is placed. 

  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 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 2017 is yellow, 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.
  • We DO NOT clip the queens wings.
  • We can only ship queens to the lower 48 states at this time.
  • If you wish to pick up your queens from our location in East Peru Iowa, please see our Carniolan Queen Bees - In Store Pickup Only category by clicking here.

Place your order online to purchase your queen honey bees. We will also accept orders over the phone if you prefer, and you can always give us a call or send us an email with any questions that you may have - we are always happy to speak with you!

Carniolan Queens

First time buyer of 3 Carniolan Queens. They arrived healthy and active a day ahead of schedule. Released into nucs and were laying nice brood pattern in days, indicating to me that rearing and mating was done correctly. Very Satisfied! Nice Queens!

This is the best deal I've found online for queens. They shipped on Tuesday and arrived alive and well on Thursday, to Casper, WY. Well packed. Thanks for a great shopping experience y'all.

Carniolan Queen Bee

Our new queen was shipped immediately after we purchased her and received within 48 hours. We inserted her into the hive, released her a few days later and are already seeing fresh larvae. Yeah!!

I purchased 5 carniola queens. They arrived on schedule healthy and ready to be place in hive. They sent a follow up email a week later from Kim to check on the order. Love that. Will absolutely buy from them again!
