NEW FOR 2018.
Each Beepol Bumblebee Hive has a Queen, workers and eggs. The hive is supplied with a Queen about 60-80 workers at the start but will build up to much higher numbers. The hive is also supplied with a sugar water internal food source. Each colony will normally live about 2-3 months depending on conditions and weather. Beepol Bumblebee Hives contain a native species of bumblebee; Bombus terristris audax.
Bumblebees will die out naturally after 2-3 months and do not overwinter. Beepol colonies often also produce new queens, which can set up new colonies in the local area.
Bumblebee Colony/Hive- supplied from early May to July 2018.
Claims made after these dates will be supplied in 2019.
