Q: What kind of vehicle do I need to pick-up my package of bees in April?


A: No special vehicle is necessary. Package bees are in a sealed container. If transporting in an open bed truck, please make sure that the bees have a wind break (i.e. up against the cab of the truck).


For those of you picking up nucs, make sure they’ll have good ventilation on the journey. They’re an active hive requiring good air flow.
