Those prices seem fairly reasonable this year compared to what I paid last year.

I may be off here, but doesn't it seem unusual to ship a package from Ohio to NC when they come from the South or Cal. anyway?  That seems like double the stress on the bees.

I don't know anyone down south with carni packages. So they may be coming from Cali. Long way for sure.

And for those who want a specific type queen line, I suggest getting a cheap package to start, keeping the shipping down, then using the saved money to purchase the queen type you want after they are established.

I paid $95 for a 3# package with a marked queen and will be picking them up in Navasota.  I haven't talked to them to see how the hurricane we had come through here last year (Ike) affected them.

Here is the email my supplier sent out.

The base price of a 3 pound package will be $90.00.  The base price of a 4 pound package will be $105.00.  If you want a marked queen it will cost an additional $2.50.  Shipping cage deposits will continue at $5.00.  When you add all of that together with state sales tax it comes to $102.65 for a three pound package with unmarked queen, $105.36 for a three pound package with a marked queen.  If you don't specify we will assume you want unmarked queens.  A four pound package with tax and shipping cage deposit will come to $118.93 with an unmarked queen and $121.64 with a marked queen.
   We plan to have package bees available for pickup at our store on the afternoon of April 15, 2009 (a Wednesday) We won't know for sure about the pickup date until about a week beforehand.  It all hinges on when the weather is warm enough for queens to get mated in Redding , CA.

OldEnglish,

Have you checked the prices at our two local suppliers (Beez Neez and Cedar Glen)?  Might save you a bit.
