BVT - 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 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. 

    

    

 

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.



  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.  


  Now Spring is upon us, and most of our beehives have been taken to the almond orchards about 75 miles to the south of us.  The trees are almost done blooming, so we will be bringing the hives home to divide them.  This is how we replace the hives we have taken all the bees from in the winter for shipping out to those needing them for BVT.


 We're beginning to see a few drones who will be mature enough soon to mate the queens we will be raising in the new hives we're going to start.

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

No snow this year.  We expect rain after this very dry Winter.

We'll keep shipping, rain or snow.  Try to have a safe place for your bees to arrive where they will not get too cold.

Wishing you better health.
