$20 To $25 dollars




what kinda places you buy queens from??? $18 dollars is the adverage, the big guys sale for 15, if you buy 100 queens its $12, I have untreated bee's and sale for 18, MB sales the first at $29 the the second on for $19 I think......

I recently purchased one queen from MB $35 including shipping. If you offer free shipping at your price you have my business. Please send Me an e-mail I would like to purchase one of your queens.

didn't realize you were adding shipping in to your queen prices, he said queen prices average and if he was going to drive somewhere to pick up queens $18 bucks is about average. so with shipping your 20-25 would be about right,

If you're getting a really good queen, you're not paying too much.  If you're only getting an average queen, then you are paying too much.

Is that counting shipping?

I went to Express mail which is usually overnight.  I get a lot less losses, especially in hot weather.  But the shipping is more than $16.

No shipping, I pick them up at the store in Sacramento. I believe, though, that they have been really good queens.

Mine are $15 plus shipping, so for one queen it would be $21.95, but if you order more than one queen the shipping is spread out over mutiple queens. Smiley

The guy I bought from last year was 15 said he was going to 28 dollars this year pick-up only. Thats why I'm trying to learn to raise my own. I have an appointment approx. 50 miles from my house this Friday to learn one on one how to raise my own queens. I think b-tween my wife and I we can give the local guy a little comp.  I can order a A.I. bred queen from Calif. for a $100. Jimmy
