As of today, Tuesday March 24th, the bee pickup schedule has not changed for Packages and Nucs.
Please be aware of the following:
1) Due to COVID-19, all orders must be by phone or by our website.
Feel free to order using our website (www.hillsidebees.com) or calling (603-429-0808). Our regular hours still apply. We are doing our best to get your order ready the day that you order. If you are picking up your order, we will send you an e-mail telling you when your items are ready.
We have a limited supply of mesh bags to help prevent bees from flying around in your car when you pick up your Packages or Nucs. The Bee Mesh Bags (link) will fit one Nuc or up to two Packages. If you order a Bee Mesh Bag, please remember to bring it when getting your bees.
2) The store will be closed Friday-Sunday before all scheduled Bee pickups.
If you need any supplies, you MUST purchase them BEFORE you pick up your bees. We can arrange for you to pick up items when you get your bees but would prefer you would get them PRIOR to bee pass-out.
3) We will contact you the week before pickup with more information.
Please don’t call to check on the status of the bees! Any changes will be listed on our website, www.hillsidebees.com .
To limit face-to-face contact with people and to protect our customers and staff, we will need to work out a different process for customers to pick up their bees than previous years. Currently, we are deciding how to do this, keeping in mind social distancing to keep everyone safe.
Thank you for being patient during this difficult time and stay healthy so you can take care of your new bees when they arrive!
