Due to Covid-19 in 2020, it is forcing higher prices for packages as more people are becoming involved in raising their own food as well as becoming involved it raising honey bees. With this, there could be a limited supply of High-Quality 3lb Packages of Honey Bees available for the 2021 season, and most of the suppliers we have spoken with already have higher preorders than in previous seasons.


If it becomes possible for us to offer 3lb Packages at lower prices we will notify our customers and refund any excess but that will be determined by the number of preorders we can provide to the suppliers.


Tennessee’s Honey Bees LLC is now taking orders to reserve 3lb Italian Honey Bee Packages that will be available in Spring 0f 2021. Please be sure to place your order ahead of time in order to get the bees that you need; we will be selling a large number of packages this spring, but we may or may not have any additional packages available on our pick-up days.


We will contact you as soon as we can confirm a pickup date
but as always MOTHER NATURE is the determining factor!


What your 3lb Package of Italian Honey Bees will contain:

The 3-pound package of Italian Honey Bees will come with a mated, UN-Marked Italian Queen. Your package will include a mixture of nurse bees, forager bees, guard bees, and drones. The queen bee will be in a cage hanging within the 3lb Package of Italian Honey Bees. A can of syrup is also included to feed the 3lb Pack of Italian Honey Bees temporarily while they are in the cage. It can be used as the first feed you serve when you place them into a Hive or Nuc.


Italian Honey Bees are the most recommended because they are very gentle, easy to work with, and are considered the best all-purpose Honey Bees. They build up their population early in the spring, and they are able to maintain high populations all summer because the queen lays a lot of eggs. This strong workforce will result in excellent honey production. Italian bees easily adapt to most climates, they overwinter well and they have good resistance to Varroa mites. They produce minimum propolis and keep a clean hive.


Tennessee’s Honey Bees 3lb Package of Italian Honey Bees is for pick up only at our location in Harrison, Tennessee. We do not charge a cage fee, and we do not require a cage exchange. We will give a $1 cage return on plastic bee bus cages only. We do not pay for wooden cages returned

Warranty Information:


South Georgia 3lb Honey Bee Packages


The 3lb Packages of Honey Bees sold by Tennessee’s Honey Bees do come from South Georgia and/or South Mississippi area. The reason is that we know the suppliers in those areas. Raising Italian Honey Bee packages is what they do.


Absconding: A package of honey bees has a high likelihood of absconding unless you block the entrance for a few days after the install. Sometimes, they even abscond if you follow this practice. We cannot warranty against this possibility. If you have questions about this, ask us!

We do not produce these packages and are acting as the "middleman" to bring them to you. Because of this, we do not warranty them.


A package consists of approximately 3lbs of Honey Bees and includes a caged mated queen. A package is housed in a specially designed, well-ventilated screened cage that includes only adult honey bees, a queen, and a can of food syrup. There are no comb, eggs, brood, or larvae included in these packages.


Though Tennessee's Honey Bees does not currently produce packages of its own, for the convenience of our customers, we supply a limited number of Italian Honey Bee packages that we can obtain from a few high-quality, reputable breeders in Southern Georgia and/or Southern Mississippi areas.


When will the 3lb Packages of Honey Bees we purchase be ready for pickup?

You will be contacted to let you know of the pickup dates as soon as they are confirmed by our suppliers. We will strive to arrange it so that pickups will take place mid to late April 2021.


Any and all pickup dates are subject to change due to the discretion of "Mother Nature"


Pickup dates are not guaranteed, due to seasonal weather variations. You will be notified as soon as we are contacted with a date for us to pick up the Honey Bees. All packages must be picked up at our location!!! When it gets close to your pickup date you may want to call ahead of time to let us know of your approximate arrival time.
