We are now accepting orders for Queens for delivery each week From April 12 through August 23rd. Queens typically arrive on Tuesday mornings with a couple of exceptions (No queens on May 30th.  And on July 6th queen arrival date is a Wednesday).  Order cut off for each queen delivery is Friday morning 10:00 am Pacific Time of the previous week.  For example, if you want a queen for Tuesday May 10th, your order must received by 10:00 am Friday May 6th.  

Queens are in 3-hole cages with a candy plug and several attendant bees. Queen bees are naturally mated. 
Marked Queens are available.  2016 queens are marked with a white dot. Select your Queen Variety preference from drop down menu and then choose from the available dates for picking up/shipping. 

If you are located in OREGON or WASHINGTON and select to have your queen mailed to you, you can choose from UPS or USPS Priority Mail.  UPS Ground typically delivers within 1 business day for Oregon and most of Washington (parts of eastern Washington are 2 business days).  USPS Priority Mail typically delivers within 1-2 days to most of the OREGON & WASHINGTON.  These delivery times cannot be guaranteed.  For guaranteed next day delivery you should select UPS NEXT DAY AIR.
If you are located outside of OREGON/WASHINGTON, you must select UPS NEXT DAY AIR for your shipping method.  Warmer temperatures are very stressful for queen bees. We'd rather you found a supplier closer to you than have you assume the risks of a road-weary, dehydrated queen.  Queens are shipped at customer's risk.  

Queens need to shipped separately from all other products for their protection.  If you're ordering other products, please make a separate order.  If you're ordering queens for multiple dates, there must be a separate order for each date. Thanks!

Beginning in Mid-April, Queens typically arrive weekly at Ruhl Bee Supply on Tuesdays.  They will be available through late August.  They must be ordered in advance and the cut off date to order is Friday morning (10 am) of the previous week.  If you opt to have the queen(s) shipped, they will be shipped on the same day they arrive to our location. 

*Does not qualify for free shipping*

Cancellation Policy:  Queen Bee orders may be cancelled prior to 10:00 am Friday the week before the queen is scheduled to arrive.  There is a $5.00 cancellation fee.
