Queen Bees for sale are allowed to lay for up to three weeks before shipping. We do this to allow the newly mated queens to settle and start laying properly. This also allows us to check the laying pattern and viability of the mated queens we have for sale.

All laying queens are marked with the current year marking colour before dispatch, and are unclipped. Our Queens are left unclipped to aid acceptance in the receiving colony. Sometimes clipped Queens can be seen as “damaged” by the receiving bees and rejected.

We ship our Buckfast Queen Bees Monday to Thursday only by Special Recorded Delivery next day by 1pm (your queen may not ship on the day of ordering), please ensure they can be delivered to your premises and are adequately protected from sun or rain until hived.

Please ensure any special delivery requirements are noted on the order, any changes must be made in writing via email. We won't accept any liability for delay, loss or damage to your queen, unless these special delivery requirements or changes are notified to us in writing via email.

In the unlikely event that your Honeybee Queen should perish during transit please return her to us in the original packaging with the contents of the cage intact and unopened. Upon her return to us and after satisfactory inspection, we may at our discretion then dispatch a replacement; we can only do this once. No refunds will be issued in these circumstances.

Please note: By placing an order you are accepting our terms and conditions. At the time of ordering you will be asked to add a contact telephone number, this is important and will only ever be used to communicate about your order.

PayPal is an easy and secure way to buy online. You don't need to have a PayPal account as Paypal also process payments by debit or credit card.
