http://www.mcmaster.com/ They call it woven wire cloth.  They carry any mesh you want.

  I have only one spot in 50 miles that has #8 hardware cloth . it is  a small "mom and pop" hardware store.
  I'd say just start checking all the local hardware stores untill you find it.  I think Kelly's has it if you want to order it on line.

Ace Hardware has it on-line and the stores can order it.  Some stores want you to take the whole roll.  McMaster will cut any length you want and they have several different grades and meshes.

Yeah, Ace is the place for #8 gal hardware cloth.  Mine is very happy to cut to order.  If you can't find any pm me and I'll send you what you need at cost plus shipping. :)

Seeing your from E TN. if around Rogersville go to Henards, they have it in small rolls for around $15.00.
You have to explain its for bees as they don't call it hardware cloth and I don't remember what they call it, just mention its for bees and they know what you mean.

    Local hardware stores are the best for me.  Just make sure that who ever cuts it and rolls it up for you got the right wire.  Otherwise you may wind up with 1/4" like I did and not realise it until too late.
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
