Small Business Saturday Sale

As a thank you to all who have helped us make it through our first year as the new owners of To Bee or Not To Bee, we have decided to offer some discounts for the holidays!

All glass jars will be 10% off!  This includes all sizes of our hex jars, straight-sided round jars, glass honey bears and 1/2lb, 1lb, and 2lb queenline jars, and all of the other glass jars in stock.

Candle and Cosmetic Making Supplies will be 5% off!  This includes colored wax sheet for making rolled candles, candle molds, bulk bees wax molds, wick, chapstick tubes, and more.

Beeswax will be heavily discounted!  This locally acquired capping wax has been coarsely filtered to remove impurities, and further settled.  This cosmetic grade bees-wax is ideal for use in skin care products, and candles. 1 oz bars will be 50% off and 1 lb. blocks will be 25% off!

Looking for a gift for the beekeeper in your life, but unsure of what to get?  Gift cards are now available at the shop!

Some items offered for sale are only available in small quantities, and all sale prices are good only while supplies last.

Sale prices apply on Saturday, November 28th

Varroa Mite Count Contest

Varroa mite count contest.

The customer that brings us a mite test with the most mites on it will win a free treatment course of their choice. Either Apiguard, or Mite-away Quick Strips.

Accepted tests are sugar rolls done onto a paper plate, or alcohol washes through a coffee filter. The number of bees tested should be ~300 (1/2 cup of bees).

Stick boards will not be accepted.

Test results must be brought into the store in person, with the winner being notified Saturday the 5th.

This may seem like an unusual contest, but through it, we are trying to encourage all beekeepers to be aware of the levels of mites in their hives.

Highland Bees selling packages for delivery at To Bee or Not To Bee

It’s that time again!

Tim Brod has just opened up his website for package and nuc sales! His packages will be Carniolans, while the nucs are Italians. You may select to have your package delivered here at the store. Tim currently has an expected delivery date in the last two weeks of April.

Tim’s nucs will not be delivered here. We are in the process of negotiating with a local supplier for nucs that will be delivered to our store. More information on those will be coming shortly. In the mean time, here’s a link to Tim’s bees, get ’em while you can.
