Need a new Queen! Help!!
« on: September 07, 2009, 09:40:47 PM »
Anyone know of a queen breeder in the south that still has queens? I killed a queen in one of my nucs today. It's too late to let them raise their own and I really don't want to combine. I've called the place that I got queens from recently and one other place. All out. These were Minn. Hyg but at this point, I really don't care what breed she is. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks gang...

Rossman and Hardeman had queens a couple of weeks ago. Both are in Georgia.

Acts2:37: Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40: And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation

Try Mike's Bees and Honey

www.mikesbeesandhoney.com

He produces a wide variety of strains and is great to do business with.  He still had queens last week.

Michael Bush is in Nebraska,  but I overheard him say he had a few feral queens for sale . Just Google Michael Bush you'll find him all over the web.

I've been happy with my Walter Kelly queen and he had queens last month - don't know about now.  He sends them regular mail so only $25 for an Italian queen.
