Recently we have received an increasing amount of phone calls from customers requesting dates and times. Unfortunately we cannot give accurate dates and times as everything is nature orientated. We understand it is exciting receiving your bees but we want to ensure that you will be happy with them so they do not leave us until we are 100% happy with their quality.

Provisional Guidelines for distribution of bees in 2018.

Conditions have allowed us to slightly improve on earlier timings. Please keep a close eye on your emails & spam folder (whitelist info"at"bshoneybees.co.uk to ensure you get our emails)
