For the beekeeping beginner, or the expert who wants to expand his apiary, Pigeon Mountain Trading Company® has the bees to meet your needs! We offer three-pound packages, nucs, and Queen bees. Our live, Italian bees are only available in the spring and early summer, so be sure to order yours today, as quantities are limited! Please note that all live bee purchases are non-refundable.
Live bees are only shipped using the United States Post Office. The shipping cost is included in the price.
Shipping of Live Bees: Pigeon Mountain Trading Company® can only guarantee that the bees are delivered to the carrier of the customer's choice in good condition. We cannot and do not in any way guarantee that the carrier you choose will deliver the bees to you in good condition. PMTC is no longer liable for the bees once they are accepted by the carrier; our only liability is to deliver the bees to the carrier of the customer's choice in good condition. We insure all of our bee packages with the carrier. In the event that your bees arrive dead or damaged, refunds will be processed by the carrier, not Pigeon Mountain Trading Company®. For USPS delivery, please check your bees before accepting the package and do not accept them if they are dead. You must file a claim immediately with the postmaster directly. Pigeon Mountain will not offer live bees shipped by air for the 2016 season. Shipments of live bees shipped by the United States Post Office ground of over 10,000 packages of live bees were delivered successfully 99.5 percent of the time. The Post Office also insures the packages and processes any claims in a timely manner.
Pick up of bees: If the customer prefers to pick up the bees at our store and apiary in LaFayette, GA, the customer accepts full responsibility and liability of the the bees after pick up.
Due to the limited quantity of bees available, all live bee purchases are non-refundable. You may cancel your order, but you will not get your money back. Once you select a shipping date, it cannot be altered without the permission of PMTC.
