    Ordered one late Wednesday morning, by that afternoon I had a tracking number for delivery. Friday morning I got a call from the post office asking if I wanted them to put it in my mail box or if I wanted to pick it up. I opted to pick it up. Placed the queen cage in a split that was unsuccessful creating their own queen, they immediately took to her in a non-aggressive fashion. Saturday morning the hive still looked like they were accepting her so I released her from the cage. Hopefully I’ll have some eggs in a week.

    Excellent Service! Ordered some queens Wednesday afternoon for splits, and genetic diversity in our yard received the queens Friday am. All queens arrived in perfect condition. Great bunch of folks to do business with.

    Great success with the bees we received. Thank you. Will buy more in 2020!

    Good customer service, queen settled in and laying in about a week, and that was with the lid getting tossed by a very near tornado miss and the hive open to rain and hail for an hour or so in the interim.

    Being from Wisconsin I was hesitant to order queens from a southern state but after watching so many of your videos, i wanted to give it a try. I ordered 2 queens and they arrived as they said they would. I introduced them and both were released and laying in 3 days. I will definitely be ordering more, probably 4 more this week. Hopefully they will all make it through winter as its been a tough couple of years.

    I have purchased Queens from Barnyard for several years. They have always arrived on time and in good condition.

    Beautiful Queens! Queen and attendants arrived healthy and alive. They were quickly shipped to Colorado. I did recently purchased so it’s late in the season so I don’t know how they will lay yet or will over winter. Barnyard was wonderful to work with. One of my queens did fly off but that had NOTHING to do with Barnyards Bees.

    Their queens are GREAT! I used them for splits (I didn’t want to wait a month) and to requeen a mean/angry hive. Shipping is really fast.

    Queen arrived alive and in good health. Queen arrived earlier than predicted by tracking number. Will be purchasing from Barnyard Bees again!!!

  14. Roger Barnes

    Purchased 2 packages of bees. Queen was dead in package #1 . Took the bees from that package and combined them with the package that had a queen and purchased a third package. What can I say, queens die, not necessarily anyone’s fault. But I must say that these bees are the calmest things I have every seen. I don’t know why I bothered with the bee jacket.
    Dave your bees rock.
