DBA:   "Allen's Bees"  -   Live Bees for Bee Venom Therapy​  -  (530) 221-1458

​​​​​​​​​​




     Ed and Bev and Rachelle have been working together with bees for may years, and Rachelle became a partner in the company in 2017.  Rachelle has made it possible for Allen's Bees to keep on  "buzzing."   She helps in every aspect of the operation, and loves working with bees.  She is the one who produces your shipping labels every Saturday after 12:00 p.m.  No orders or changes after that time, please.

​    Ed has been working with bees for most of his life. He retired from shipping package bees and queen bees in 2005.  He had begun shipping Bee Venom Bees in the '90's and expects to continue for quite some time.  Bev helps customers get their orders lined out appropriately for their needs, as well as manages the company accounting.

    

    

 

Early Monday mornings you will find Ed and Rachelle getting their smokers going and heading out to shake bees from the hives.


Soon they are back at the house loading the cages with the appropriate number of bees in each cage.  The cages have been marked to indicate how may bees should be in there.  Sometimes we hear that a drone or a queen has slipped into a cage, or even a mite.  Mites are a continual concern, and the hives get medicated several times each year when there is no honey flow. 


After getting them loaded they are given a drink of water, and then sorted into their appropriate groups for packing.


Bev will be at the computer with accounting challenges, and trying to get any late orders or changes taken care of before taking the trip to the post office.



  Ed and Rachelle keep constant watch on the bees.  Here they were adding pollen patties in the Spring to push the bees into producing more bees.  This is done when there is little pollen producing flowers blooming in the area.  


  Currently, going into the Winter, they are doing this again.  This will give us another batch of young bees to provide to customers, as well as help the hives to survive the winter and come into Spring stronger. 


 The patties are placed near the brood area, and honey stores are checked in case they need a frame of honey added.

Besides beehive care, considerable time is spent on customer care! We strive to keep orders accurate and regular.  Call if you have any questions.

Perhaps it will snow here again this winter - that will not slow us down!  We'll keep shipping.  Try to have a safe place for your bees to arrive where they will not freeze.

Wishing you better health.
