Shipping

At the moment we only ship in Europe via EMS (Express Mail Service) and UPS.

Shipping via EMS

Shipping via EMS – Express Mail Service (recommended) normally takes 3 to 5 days, depending on the location of the customer. The average price per shipment using this option is 22 EUR, with minor variations depending on the delivery address. For a complete list of prices please click here. All the orders shipped via EMS will be sent on Mondays in order to reach the destination by the end of the week.

Shipping via UPS

Shipping via UPS normally takes 1-2 days, with an average cost of 90 EUR per shipment depending on the location of the customer and the weight of the package.

The queens will be placed inside special plastic cages, along with a few working bees and food (paste made of sugar and honey). The plastic cages will be secured inside cardboard ventilated envelopes or boxes. We’ve tried various other methods and this was by far the optimal solution. Normally there will not be any incidents during shipping. In the unlikely event that some queens will have sustained injuries or died during shipping, we will replace them with no extra charges. Please send as a notification via email, along with a photo that clearly depicts the injured or dead queens. They will also need to be returned to us in the plastic cages.

Payment

The payment will be carried out right before the shipping of the queens. Please do not make any payments until we have contacted you by email and have mutually agreed on a delivery date.
