You are picking up live bees. They are in disposable Nuc Boxes. It is your responsibility to make sure that you are transporting them home in a safe and secure manner.
They are alive and in good condition when you pick them up. It is your responsibility to ensure that they are transported in an appropriate manner to ensure that they make it home alive. The trunk of your car is not a good place to put them.
The best place to transport your bees is in the back of a pickup truck or a trailer so that the bees are kept cool and well ventilated. If you do not have a truck or a trailer, the back seat of your car with the air conditioning on or the windows down is also good.
Loss of life due to overheating is at your own risk. It is up to you as the Beekeeper to decide how best to transport your bees and do do it in such a manner as to ensure your bees health and well being.
Queens will be available for April 2020
Ontario Bred Queens from overwintered colonies will be available in June 2020
