My bees came from Walter Kelly too. Shipped Saturday arrived monday morning, with maybe 20 dead bees. Openned syrup and had 3/4 can. I don't think they had been in there long. Mine did have a georgia dept of ag. sticker. I don't know if kelly raises their's on site or has them shipped in. And it had a priority mail shippnig label on the box. Of course they say they deliver their's by truck to a big mail hub, Louisville I think, and they leave our from there. Kelly's also give you instructions on what to do if your bees arrive dead.

I never had an issue with Kelly. I've done business with them before, many times. I went with this new company because Kelly didn't have any packages for sale this late in the season. That was a big mistake.

An update. Paypal has recovered my funds. The vendor chose not to contest my dispute.

Wisconsin no longer allows shipments of "package" bees through the mail but I get queens from Texas mailed via FedEx, the US Post and UPS in envelopes marked live bees, so far without any issues.  This year I had two queens leave Texas on a Wednesady in 90 degree temps and arriving in Wisconsin on a Saturday (my PO called me) in the mid-30's.  All survived, including attendant's.

I would appreciate a PM as well. Never ordered any as I have ferals but I get a lot of requests for bees and want to be sure not to steer someone wrong when I refer them to a vendor.

Thanks for the PM. I'm sorry you had trouble with a vendor from my state. In our defense they "ain't from round here" as we say. I usually refer folks to Rossman down in Moultrie. I usually make the drive to pick up my orders and have met the fine people there, Mr Rossman is a fine gentleman BTW, and have zero complaints so far.

Could I get that info, too?  I'm just starting out and the last thing I need is a bad experience like you had.  Glad you recovered your money but you still lost time with your hives.

Take care,
Ed
