Bee Delivery Day Directions

This update is April 22nd, 2022 at 10:40AM. 

 

Where We Are in Delivery Schedule: 

 

All bee packages have been delivered and the bees should be happily flying around in their new home. 

Although the feeder cans were about half full it is a good reminder to have feed available for them when they arrive.  

Please be sure to feed your bees as soon as practical.

 

 

 

We sent out an email called  2022 Bee Delivery Day Procedures  for this upcoming shipment.

 

Pick Up Driving Directions:

 

Anchorage:  Access Kenn Barnett's house by following this driving route:   Use East 68th Ave to turn south on Bugle Court.  Follow Bugle Court for 3 blocks until it intersects with Henderson Loop. Turn Right onto Henderson Loop.  If you follow Henderson Loop it will take you to East 72nd Ave.  Turn Left onto East 72nd Ave. This will place you on the south side of the street one block from Kenn’s garage. 

 

This will form a line of cars on the same side of the street leading to Kenn’s house.  If you are the first to arrive at 3780 E 72nd Ave, please stay in your car and wait to be signaled by one of the helpers when you can roll forward to the front of Kenn’s driveway. 

 

If you ordered pollen, it will be wrapped & labelled with your name.  If you need pollen substitute, please have exact change of $4 each as we will not make change; place the money directly into the container provided for that purpose.

Palmer:   We sent out an email called  2022 Bee Delivery Day Procedures  for this upcoming shipment.

 

We are using Brant & Becky Dallas’ home down Clark-Wolverine on 15700 E Jupiter Dr.  Go down Arctic, turn left onto Clark-Wolverine, go left at T, then it’s the first right onto Mars, and the first right onto Jupiter.  This is a u-shaped driveway to speed the delivery process as it worked so well last year. Last year was the most efficient manner for pick up; so we are going to do it again.

 

Please remain in line in your cars until those in front of you have moved off and you can roll forward to the front of Brant’s garage.  

 

If you ordered pollen, it will be wrapped & labelled with your name.  If you need pollen substitute, please have exact change of $4 each as we will not make change; place the money directly into the container provided for that purpose.

WASILLA:    We sent out an email called  2022 Bee Delivery Day Procedures  for this upcoming shipment.

 Our pick up spot will be on the corner of Vine and Parks Highway across from Goldstar Plumbing and right next to the Tessoro / Crowley Fuel station.  It is easy to get into, has lots of space and should be free of melt water.  The parking lot is pretty open and has easy access from Vine as well as the Parks Highway southbound lanes.  If you are coming from the center of town you will turn left on Vine from the turn lane at the signal, then turn right into the parking lot.   Southbound from the Meadow Lakes area you will access the parking lot by turning right into the Tessoro / Crowley station or turn right on Vine and then turn right into the lot.  We will be distributing the bees directly from our trailer and probably on the east side of the lot.  If you get there early and we have not arrived yet you can top off your tank, wash your windows, and visit the coffee shop right there on the corner.  They should have a supply of mini marshmallows so instead of buying a whole bag and using only a couple you may consider a cup of hot chocolate with some marshmallows on the side...

If you ordered pollen, it will be wrapped & labelled with your name.  If you need pollen substitute, please have exact change of $4 each as we will not make change; place the money directly into the container provided for that purpose.
