     Ed and Bev and Rachelle have been working together with bees for may years, and Rachelle became a partner in the company in 2016.  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 manages the company accounting, and helps Rachel get customer orders lined out appropriately for their needs. 

    

    

 

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

We look forward to Winter.  Our Summer sky is so smokey.  We'll keep shipping, hot, cold, rain or snow.  Try to have a safe place for your bees to arrive where they will not get too hot or too cold.

Ed is now more involved in maintaining equipment and office work

 

Rachelle and her husband, Bill,  keep constant watch on the bees.  They are adding pollen patties in the Fall to push the bees into producing more bees.  This is done as a last measure to have them strong for the Winter.


  When Spring is upon us most of our beehives will be taken to the almond orchards about 75 miles to the south of us.  The trees are done blooming the hives will be brought home be divided.  This is how we replace the hives we have taken all the bees from in the winter for shipping out for bee venom therapy.


 

Wishing you better health.

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.    


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.
