The Buzz Bag is an essential tool for beekeepers, designed to securely contain honey bees during transport from packages to nucs all the way up to full size hives. With its zippered mesh construction, this bag provides a reliable solution for moving bees between locations, ensuring their safety and yours throughout the journey.

Great Features for Each Size Hive:

Nucleus Hive or Package Bag:

Specifically crafted for beekeepers moving a single nucleus hive or up to 3 packages of bees, the Buzz Bag accommodates all 5 frame equipment with deep or medium frames. Versatile and practical, it can also be used for swarm capturing and maintaining bee containment for safety purposes.

Single Bag:

Ideal for larger setups, the single Buzz Bag comfortably fits 8 or 10 frame equipment, including a fully assembled bottom board, telescoping cover, and deep box with frames. This option provides reliable bee transport, swarm management, and containment in various scenarios.

Double Bag:

Our largest Buzz Bag is designed to accommodate a full-size double deep or triple medium 8 or 10 frame hive, complete with a bottom board, telescoping cover, and frames. With this bag, you can confidently move your hive while ensuring the bees remain secure inside.

Move Bees Safely:

The Buzz Bag is expertly designed to keep bees securely contained during hive transportation. Rest assured that the bag's construction prevents any accidental escapes, ensuring the safety of both the bees and the beekeeper during transport.

Easy Loading:

Each Buzz Bag features a user-friendly design that simplifies the loading process. Simply lay the bag open on the ground, place the hive over the opening, and smoothly zip the easy-slide YKK zipper to cover the top and side of the bag. Pulling the sides of the bag up and over the hive becomes effortless.

Smart Size and Design:

Our gusseted bags are carefully designed to provide a perfect fit for your complete hive, allowing extra room for telescoping covers and bottom boards. The bag's shape mirrors that of the hive, ensuring a seamless and secure fit.

We prioritize the longevity and durability of our Buzz Bags. Each bag is crafted with rip-resistant mesh, YKK zippers equipped with large pull rings for easy operation, a velcro patch for added security, and a safety lock stitch with extra-strong thread to ensure the bag remains intact.

Buzz Bags - You DO need them!

When I picked up my 2023 Nucs , I brought a couple of my old bags. When I arrived, I was introduced to Buzz Bags and decided to use those to transport my bees. Probably the first time I didn't have a bee riding with me in my car. I bought a couple more and used to transport bees in 2024 - not a single bee in the car. You can buy appropriately sized bags, so it makes it easy to move nucs / hives. They are great and love the zipper!


Worked as expected. I have no experience with bees before this, but i brought bees into house so they wouldn't have to sit out in the sun, my dogs were constantly investigating the bees and might have bumped the lid off the hive box. I would hate to have had to catch all those bees in the house, so it done what it was supposed to do

Awesome, Anthony! Sounds like the Buzz Bag saved the day. Here's to beekeeping without the indoor bee chase!

Great Design

This is a great product. Purchased it when I purchased my nuc to safely transport them home in my vehicle. I had about 20 bees get out of the box but they were all contained in the bag. Did not lose any bees even though we have a fairly long drive home. Can't recommend this product highly enough.

Thank you, Ron! Your recommendation means a lot to us!
