When you buy your honey bees with the Snohomish Bee Co. you get support and service from a local business right in your backyard. We stand behind all of our products and will be there to provide you with care that you deserve!
Our Italian honey bee supplier, in Northern California, has been breeding some of the best queens and honey bees for 40 years and his father did the same for 20 years before that.
For our Carniolan Honey Bees:
Our Carniolan's come from one of Northern Californias oldest and largest Carniolan honey bee suppliers. With over 4 generations of family ownership, these Carniolans contain an Italian cross that have provided some of the most successful and dependable colder weather honey bees we've encountered. Carniolan honey bees have proven to be calm on the comb and incredibly productive when it comes to nectar harvesting. They manage their brood size very closely, allowing them survive the challenging winter with a smaller cluster of bees, requiring less food through the colder months.
