Does anyone have any suggestions on a supplier for Minnesota Hygenic Bees?  My local supplier has been hit hard with CCD and probably will not have any bees for sale this year, he is trying to build his colonies back up.  I would like nucs or single stories as long as they were within a reasonable distance but that is unlikley (located in north central Arkansas), so I will be looking at package bees.
Thanks for any suggestions.

look in the ABJ.  I think I seen an add from one of the large bee guys making splits and using MH queens and selling off as singles.  They are probably palletized though.

Who do you normally get your bees from?

I heard Jester took a beating with CCD this year and needs time to recover.
