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 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
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.
