Glad to hear you got some more bees!

I drove a 3-hour round-trip both years to pick up my packages rather than have them shipped.  I enjoyed the drive in the country with all the wildflowers blooming and it was fun to visit a bee yard.   :-D

Anyone near Peoria want to sell a few bees or a queen?
Brian - Google maps shows Smithville located near Wayne City, a far distance from Peoria. Last weekend a friend and I picked up and moved two unwanted bee colonies in Herrin. The one in a log is sitting on a local farm near Ava, IL if you want it. Not too far a drive if you live near Wayne City. This is a strong colony that could be moved to a box. Let me know if you want it. 

I've also heard very good comments regarding Long Lane Honeybees. Glad to have them in the area.

I would love more bees if they are still available.
