 NEW this year Winter California QUEENS : Call for Availability 

Nobody else has winter, California queens available. These are queens from our best California Breeder. YES CALIFORNIA QUEENS.  Not From Kona HI. No Amitraz exposure.  We have taken the very best and placed these queens in very special queen hives.  This allows these girls to just cruise along with their workers and nurse bees. We babysit these hives to make sure all goes well over the winter months.  We do this to help you get a winter queen without spending $350.00 on minimum orders and shipping from Kona HI.  When selling one of these queens to you, we are surrendering a complete, well managed hive,  so you can save your colonies. We will have limited numbers of queens during the winter season. When they are gone-They are gone.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

At Orange County Beekeeping Supplies we’re passionate about Honeybees and making our customers successful with raising bees, as well as honey production. We do not sell everything available for beekeeping, because a great deal of that equipment does not work well in Southern California. Beekeeping is very localized.  We only provide the highest quality products, that works best in Southern California. We carry many items that are produced onsite.  Our metal hive stands are custom-built for us.  Our boxes, and frames are both glued and nailed, something you wont get from the mail order or other stores.  All painting is all done in-house, all equipment  is  primed and top coated, with tops all triple coated.  You will see and enjoy the difference.  Our gear will help you succeed as a beekeeper in            Southern California.

Queens and Nucs

If you need a bee hive NOW!  Just Call

We offer 5 deep frame Nucs during the Spring and Fall season for our customers.

Our nucs either come from our own trusted hives, or in April each year we offer Nucs from Randy Oliver, Grass Valley, Calif.  All nucs come in either cardboard boxes, corrugated plastic boxes, or pro nuc plastic boxes.  Nuc hives come with frames of brood, pollen and honey and a commercially raised queen from small queen breeders in Northern California.

We think small custom queen breeders raise some of the best queens available from anywhere. 

Nucs supplied by Randy Oliver come with his locally adapted and mite resistant stock. Randy's queens are unmarked.

NEW -  We have queen bees available on a weekly basis starting in April and running through September.

And sometime longer depending on weather.
