I like Kellys for my frames. They seem to assemble better for me than some others. I have found them so nice to deal with that I get most of my things from them.

Here a place with a list of suppliers in different lanuages.

Another supplier: Plastiac frames.

Better Bee for most stuff for me too. Sometimes Brushy Mountain - they are really nice folks.

For woodenware I really like Western Bee. I've found their cheapest grades similar to commercial grade from other guys.

Queens - I like B Weaver's. Their All-American's are just a steady, reliable bee. Really calm on the comb, good producers and their offspring are just as good. Just checked the hives and all 9 are strong and heavy. This is the second year I haven't treated for mites!

Betterbee gets my vote.  they have the quickest turn around and
the lowest shipping costs for me, since they are the closest, largest supplier near me.

I like Mann Lake too, they have the best catalog.

Brushy Mtn is where I get some from too.


overall, everyone I have purchased from is real nice.

I'm pretty lucky I guess.  I get my stuff from Jones Bee Company.  About a ten minute drive.  I'm ordering packages from koehnen in California.  Jones will sell bees too.. but they don't want to take any orders until mid Feb.

I've gotten my stuff from Mann Lake -- except for a hive tool and a set of frame holders that just showed up on m dorrsteps!!!  I'll be making my own hive boxes, but buying frames from Mann Lake, unless one of the other suppliers mentioned here has a better deal.

I've purchased beekeeping supplies from Mann Lake, Betterbee & Dadant. As far as package bees I bought from B Weaver last year and have an order with R Weaver for this coming spring. I have been happy with the products I have received from all the above suppliers. My complaint is with shipping cost they are just brutal I wish I could find a supplier who offers free shipping on orders over a certain amount.
