Product Overview

Purebred Russian Package Bees

Immerse yourself in beekeeping with our RHBA-certified purebred Russian bees. Each package comes with 3 lbs of honey bees and a laying purebred Russian queen that has been open-air mated.

These bees do not build their colony populations until pollen is available and shut down brood rearing when pollen is scarce. This trait is advantageous in areas where the primary honey and pollen flows emerge later in the year.

Key Features

Here are the key characteristics that make these Russian honey bees stand out:

  • Increased resistance to varroa
  • High resilience against tracheal mites
  • Brood rearing synced with periods of pollen availability
  • Low likelihood of robbing

See our installation guide here to help get your new Russian honey bee colony settled in.

Russian Bees

For best results, introduce your bees to their new hive during early to mid-spring, coinciding with abundant foraging options. Local floral cycles can influence this timing, so it's essential to ensure your bees have ample resources upon their arrival.

Order and Details

Our bee packages are available while supplies last.

Package bee orders are prepaid and are subject to a $10 change or cancellation fee after the prepayment has been processed.

By purchasing, you’re agreeing to our Bee Policy.
