Please Note: Beekeeping Supplies are by Appointment / Local Pickup Only

We are located about a half hour southwest of downtown San Antonio just outside of Somerset, TX.

However, we do not have a store for "walk in shopping" at this time. Since we are a bee farming operation and work our bees at multiple locations, we take orders via the website and arrange for pickup on scheduled pickup dates.


Supplies are Local Pickup Only

Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

The vaporization of Oxalic Acid (aka Wood Bleach) kills greater than 95% of the phoretic varroa mites (mites on the bees) but it will not kill mites in the brood so it is best to treat when there is little to no brood in your hive, usually late fall or early winter. If you need to treat in the summer months you must 3 successive treatments to vaporize the mites that are emerging from the brood cells. Vaporized Oxalic Acid has also been proven to kill tracheal mites.

The beauty of vaporization is that there is no need to open the hive to treat. No strips or pads to install then remove. Simple, easy and effective. Oxalic acid sold separately. Requires a 12 volt battery for operation and safety equipment such as a respirator and safety glasses.

Oxalic Acid Vaporizer treatment for mites uses 2 grams of OA measuring spoon included. Insert into entrance of hive seal entrance with cloth and attach copper clamps to battery for 2 minutes with a fully charged 12 volt car or deep cycle battery. Remove vaporizer and leave hive sealed for 10 additional minutes remove cloth.

Beekeeping Supplies and Products Are Local Pick Up Only (at this time) Except Special Orders

Shipping or delivery arrangements may be made with minimum orders and certain products.

Cancellation, Refund and Return Policy:
     Honey bees are livestock, therefore they are subject to conditions and other factors that effect their health such as; diseases, pesticides, temperatures, etc. and since we have no control over the conditions the bees are subjected to once they leave our property, we can not be responsible for incidents or accidents after they leave our possession. For these reasons, we recommended hive inspections before loading and leaving our property and signing off on the order received documents.
     Since we must make all necessary arrangements and commitments to secure everything needed to fill orders, from equipment to reserving bees to securing queens from preferred out of state breeders, etc., we have the following cancellation policy:

Cancellation of Orders: All cancellations for refunds must be requested in writing within seven (7) days from the time the order is placed. A 10% processing fee will be applied to all cancellation requests filled after the seventh day of the order and will be processed as time permits.
