BEES, QUEENS & NUCS

MBBA encourages healthy beekeeping

Bee Packages, Queens,and Nucs can be purchased from all over the USA. A lot of the packaged bees we see in Washington are coming from California, while a growing number are produced here in Oregon and Washington.

The foundation of this goal is beginning with the appropriate knowledge, materials and locally raised, properly treated and healthy bees. In line with this goal, we are now offering this “For Sale or Share” section in our monthly newsletter and website. There is no transfer of equipment listed here, only bees.
