Looking for Russians in NC (within 100 miles of Charlotte)
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:59:26 AM »
Just getting started, and would like to start out with 2 or 3 hives worth of russians.  If anyone has them or knows where I can pick some up now or in the next couple of months, please let me know.  Thanks

Check with Chuck Norton in Reidsville,Nc. 336-342-4490. www.mybeebusiness.com. We bought a few last year and they did well. Jim

Chuck had a lot of problems last year, and some who paid last year still haven't gotten their bees. I would be leary of ordering from him unless I were going to pick them up and pay on the spot.

 I have used Ray Revis in Marion for some queens. He sells nucs also and he is good to deal with.
