Buying package bees
« on: November 14, 2011, 12:54:32 PM »
Where should I buy from? Most places I found on the web seem to only offer pick up, does anyone know if there is a pickup point in central pa? the closest place i have found is 2 1/2 hour drive away.

I put a wanted ad on Craigslist in the farm and garden section that said "wanted package bees" and I got several responses that told me where to get them close by and also the bee association told me where I can get them and lots of people offered to sell me nucs.
