Packages Available in July? I Need Some!
« on: July 19, 2005, 10:09:48 AM »
I'll be hitting the phone lines later, but maybe some of you have found yourselves in the position to want packages of bees late in the year, like now?  Has anyone found them, and if so, where?  I know it's really too late to start packages, but I've got a specific need, and a plan.

If anyone knows of a breeder who would be willing to make up two pound packages, let me know.  I'd need between ten and twenty.

Thanks!!

John

I know of a commercial beekeeper, but as for needing that many...whooee, that's a lot of bees...He has an email address and here it is-

wootengoldqueens@aol.com

But as for having any available, I don't know...

Well, you might not be thanking me for long...He is out of N. California, in the middle of bee season and working his ...um...tail... off.  And after a day or two,  his wife can answer email and she is aquainted with the bee-ness...

What prompted the need for 10 hives pkgs?
