Sunday - February 7, 2016
Our dates for 2016 bees are:
Late March 2016 - Last part of May 2016
6 - Loads of packaged honeybees so far!
Load - 1 - Late March 2016
Load - 2 - Early April 2016

Load - 4 - Late April 2016
Load - 5 - Early May 2016
Load - 6 - Late May 2016
For the 1st load we will start making schedules
for pick-up here on March 31, 2016 onward tell
all scheduled orders for that load are gone.
See prices for bees way below!
Don't wait to call for bees!
Loads close rapidly each season!
Today we have:
Just over 7 weeks
tell the 1st load of bees arrive
Remember when the early slots are filled
you will not get your order as early as
you want them. The sooner you hive
your bees the better your honey yield
or better pollination of fruits and berries etc.
Right now our first load the one in March
is enough filled we are beginning to place
new orders on our second load and
onward for the remaining 4 loads.
Your investment needs time to grow!
If you were in contact with us last season
you were well aware of dates closing super fast!
Do yourself a favor and call for your order
We started taking orders
for bees already for 2016

I am very happy to report that persons are
now calling with increasing speed
so they will not be left out
another person & a number for callers.
This new person (Beth)

If you call & we don't call you back later the day
when you first called

His wife Jenn - email address
Jared Tuttle worked to
ship packages and nucs this past spring.
Now both Jared and Jennifer
will be dealing with shipping of Packages
and Nucs in spring 2016.
We here at Parsons' Gold Apiaries
near Forest, Ohio have the Package Bees,
nucs and bee equipment.
We deal with persons driving here
for their orders of packages/nucs/queens
and related bee equipment.
After GA Packages are over in
Late May 2015
We really get going on Ohio Nucs
from May to late Fall.
Robert B. Parsons
What happens each year persons think because
it is early they don't have to worry about getting
honeybees. All experienced Beekeepers want the
early slots not the late dates.
Beekeepers wanting really large orders
of packages and nucs need to get their
orders to us now.
Honeybee providers are ordering now for their
customers and those slots are filling fast!
If you want orders of 25 - 50 - 75 - 100 +
Packages or Nucs
we must hear from you now!!!
Call Parsons' Gold Apiaries at 419-273-3066
If no one picks up leave a message saying your
numbers twice slowly!
Place your order soon!
Tri-County Bee Convention
Will be here before we know it.
March 3rd and 4th - 2016
Shipping info. below:
We supplied this past March through May
close to 600 packages
We have a family member in Forest, Ohio
with 11 years bee related experience.
He is running two apiaries to date.
Juice Time Apiaries will again be shipping
Packages and Nucs in from GA
We are working to provide bees from
Ohio as well as in from FL
if orders go out of sight.
Remember persons getting packages or nucs
by mail could experience dead bees on the bottom
of each container some.
When shipping honeybees the unit
is under great stress as the postal department
does not handle honeybees like you or I would.
Brood/honeybees will die in route due to how the item is handled.
Honeybees in a container like a nuc will begin pulling out
dead larva/nearly grown bees and they will drop to the
bottom of the container. This is standard practices for honeybees.
Honeybees in shipping containers can be 1, 2, or 3 weeks old.
Honeybees often unless cared for well will die in 3 weeks.
When a buyer asks for their bees to be shipped they are
doing this at their own risk and we are not responsible for losses!
Every week we get in buyers for honeybee orders that have driven
100 - 200 - 300 - 400 and past 500 miles here so they
can avoid shipping their bees.
Nucs from Ohio are limited in numbers
if you are reading this do not delay ordering!
We have already gotten in many orders to date.
Buyers do not want to miss out order early.
Since May this past spring our OH nuc production
reached nearly 100 units mostly 4 frames
We also placed around 30 to 35 GA nucs
wanted hard to get queen types
delaying their order tell July.
Any one that wanted a queen like
an Italian or Russian that makes the process
In most parts of the USA July
starts the major nectar flow.
I caught a swarm August 8, 2009
it did well enough that season to
get through the winter well and
was one of my best hives summer
Just this past week 9-19-2015 I placed
3 - nucs with a beekeeper in here from
Carmel, Indiana. New at bees so he and
his loved ones are going to have some very
Some beekeepers came last
August 2014 got some nucs and went home
and made each over 100 lbs. of honey.
Nuc pricing see way below this page
We usually have buyers pay
for their orders in advance
as much time and effort goes
into an order. Orders in from
from GA or FL are paid
for also weeks in advance
of the buyer actually getting
his or her honeybees/Queens!
Ones that pay in advance
can make sure that their order
will actually go to them. Often
when the order is ready and we
call the buyer to come they are
on vacation or not answering
Beekeepers that are driving here
for bee equipment must call first
This spring/Summer until further notice we
will be selling nucs
Parsons' Gold Apiaries
has the basic Bee Equipment that
beekeepers might need.
Our late spring shipping of nucs
has not started yet.
Those rates will still be figured
Parsons' Gold Apiaries
Juicetime Apiaries will be working together
#4 Frame OH Nucs $65,00
Depending on distance.
We will reserve the right to accept
orders as that relates to distance out.
Listings can change without notice
ask when you phone or email the company
if the prices and figures have changed.
These companies will do all in their power to get the
order to the P.O. as quickly as possible.
This company can do nothing
once the bees are at the post office.
Care for queens and bees
once you leave the P.O.
is extremely important they
don't get too hot or too cold!
Bees are super hard to get
take super care of them!
Ohio nucs produced by Parsons' Gold Apiaries
and Juice Time Apiaries
We prefer that you come for the order
We are going to try to ship some 2015 orders.
Check later with Beth for more details!
I will be filling the details to Beth soon for
new plans for our nucs.
Orders that need to be shipped an order
that is not a 5 frame nuc
buyers will need to arrange
with us to purchase a
new frame or two to fill the box
so frames don't move from
side to side killing bees or the queen.
New price below as of today!
#3 Frame w/Italian Queen - $190.00 ea.
#3 Frame w/ Russian Queen - $206.00 ea.
#3 Frame w/Buckeye Bell Queen - $236.00 ea.

Due to massive demands for honeybees
we might need to make up your
nuc and hand you the queen when you arrive.
If persons reading this site above want orders of nucs
such as 6 - 7 - 10 - 20 plus, call about volume pricing
