research before you buy.....
now i am :deadhorse:.....fooey!
i have to give credit to ronwhite3030 for reading 19 pages from that forum, alot of reading! i did the same when i realized i had been swindled out of $740.00 this year.
in short, i ordered bees from David Winters of Long Creek Apiaries in february 2010, they were NEVER delivered and he REFUSES TO SEND ME A REFUND OF MY $740.00. If you would like some facts on David Winters and Long Creek Apiaries, or my experience with him, these are my posts 'overthere': #164 page 17; #180 page 18; #182 page 19;#192 page 20; and #193 page 20. just go to the link rdy-b supplied. i am unable to link to my posts because i have not posted here.
i hope i can help another beek out before they send david winters of long creek apiaries their hard earned money.
i also checked with the Better Business Bureau, there has been a couple more complaints filed with them since I last checked. the Better Business Bureau has given Long Creek Apiaries an 'F' rating. i can look at the number of complaints filed, for what reasons, and if any have been resolved; just google Better Business Bureau of Tennessee and in the search box type in Long Creek Apiaries. (geez, i remember getting an 'F' in school.... :shock:
I never really ever used the Better Business Bureau to check out a company until I did business with David Winters of Long Creek Apiaries and had $740.00 SWINDLED from me by him. Lesson learned, i get an 'F' for trusting David Winters of Long Creek Apiaries.
