You are ready to get into Beekeeping, but you need a Colony of Bees.
(Ideal for Flow® Hives or regular Langstroth Hives)
Our 7-Frame Accelerated Bee Colonies are beneficial to our Flow® Hive or Langstroth Hive Customers eager to get their first honey harvest or if you need a little more flexibility on when you want to receive your bees.
Our Premium 7-Frame Accelerated Bee Colonies are medium-sized colonies of bees with a laying queen and brood, ready to expand into a larger hive. These are ideal colonies of bees for Beginner Beekeepers looking to start their beekeeping straight away with an accelerated start in beekeeping. They are perfect to introduce into a Flow® Hive or Langstroth Hives as they will not have to build out lots of empty frames in the brood box. This will enable your bees to accelerate their development and begin working with the Honey Super (Flow Frames) sooner.
While they are larger colonies, they still have a young Italian mated queen with strong desirable genetics and a very docile temperament.
When you receive your 7-Frame Accelerated Bee Colony it will consist of:
- A mated Italian Queen Bee from good genetic stock,
- Approximately 7500 gentle bees,
- 7 full-depth frames with a combination of brood, honey, and pollen.
