Italian Hybrid 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 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 Be Supply & Honey Farms LLC 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.

Queen orders of 10-19 will be shipped out by UPS 2nd Day Air, and orders of 20 or more will be shipped out 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!
