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.

Thank you to all who participated in 

MBBA’s “Bee Meet & Greet!”

February 20th, 2020

It was a HUGE success!

Hope to see you at next years Bee Meet & Greet!

This was an informal opportunity for those people selling bees and those looking to purchase bee’s to come together as we prepare for the spring beekeeping season and to promote local beekeeping and beekeepers. However if you are still looking for bees, nuc’s and queens please check out local beekeepers in list below;
