Friday - August 28, 2015
another person & a number for callers.
This new person (Beth)
comes to us with extensive experience
talking to beekeepers!
will be taking most of my bee calls
Starting - 2-8-2015 - 7:00 P.M. onward!
If we don't call you back later the day
when you first called
If you remember from last spring
my time to talk on the phone will be gone once
the apiary work begins near
Forest, OH. After that you will
need to call
Beth number above or
Jared Tuttle worked to
ship packages and nucs this past spring.
We here at Parsons' Gold Apiaries
near Forest, Ohio had the Package Bees
and Nucs for pick up
in the spring now it is Ohio nucs 2015
Robert B. Parsons
We still have to Bee Equipment
By appointment only!
Shipping info. below:
We have a family member in Forest, Ohio
with 11 years bee related experience.
He is running two apiaries to date. We
will be working on the details to provide OH
Nucs for shipping together.
Remember persons getting packages or nucs
by mail will experience dead bees on the bottom
of each container often one or more inches.
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.
Ordering Ohio Nucs!
We will this week place right at
16 nucs for buyers that called in spring
to early summer 2015. Some buyers
wanted hard to get queen types
delaying their order tell July.
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
Some beekeepers came last
August 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 CA 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
their phone and we then try
to get them on another order
date since they paid.
Beekeepers that are driving here
for bee equipment must call first before
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 $55.00 - $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.
This is the price below as of July 3, 2015 also!
#3 Frame w/Italian Queen - $176.00 ea.
#3 Frame w/ Russian Queen - $186.00 ea.
#3 Frame w/Buckeye Bell Queen - $216.00 ea.
#4 Frame w/Italian Queen - $226.00 ea.
#4 Frame Nuc w/Russian Queen - $236.00 ea.

#5 Frame w/Italian Queen - $276.00 ea.
5# Frame w/Russian Queen - $286.00 ea.
#5 Frame w/Buckeye Bell Queen - $316.00 ea.
Due to massive demands for honeybees
we might need to make up your
nuc and hand you the queen when you arrive.
