Electronic download only. Honey bees can be purchased through a beekeeper and sold in two forms: packages and nucleus colonies. Purchasing bees allows more control over genetics of the colony, and select bees with desired traits, such as gentleness or good honey production. Once the package arrives, install the bees into the hive box within 1 to 2 days—or as soon as possible—to prevent death. (Author: Molly Keck. 2 pages, 4 figures, 1 table.)
