* Required Fields


SUMMER Leafcutter Bees available May—August

  • • Summer bees require temperatures of 75°F (24°C) or warmer AND sufficient sources of pollen/nectar for best performance.
  • • We incubate your summer bees so they arrive ready for immediate placement outdoors.
  • • If you are seeking pollination for your flowering summer vegetables, consider when these plants will flower. A seedling planted in April or May may not produce flowers until June or July.
  • • Current agricultural restrictions prohibit the shipment of leafcutter bees to the state of HI, and other countries outside of the continental United States.
  • If you are a Canadian resident, please order from Crown Bees Canada.


  • • A hot mail box can be harmful to developing or emerging bees. If you are not home during the day to retrieve your bees, consider having them shipped to your workplace.
  • • Select the Monday when you would like your bees shipped, allowing 1-5 days for delivery. When the bees ship, you will receive a USPS tracking number by email.


  • • We care about your success and do our best to provide healthy bees. While most customers successfully raise gentle bees, it is important to understand that bees are wild insects and may not nest in your yard, may be eaten by birds, and may not emerge from their cocoons. We cannot guarantee survival, pollination of crops, or reproduction of bees.
  • • These bees are gentle, typically non-aggressive and rarely sting, While there have been no known reported cases of anaphylactic shock in association with these bees, the use and handling of solitary bees may result in allergic reaction for some users.
  • • Please consider signing up for BeeMail, our monthly newsletter, designed to provide tips and reminders to help ensure success.

Meeting your expectations: We care about your success and do our best to provide healthy bees. While most of our customers successfully raise gentle bees, it is important to understand that bees are wild insects and may find other holes in your yard. They may get eaten by birds and fly/nest best when in their appropriate temperature range. Native bees may not like the smell of chemical lawn/yard treatments or similar chemicals and might nest elsewhere.
