I myself need a queen for a colony that is without. Most don't have any until early April. I ordered one which will be here around the 2nd week of April. I also ordered a queen pheromone that hopefully will tide the bees over until she arrives. I am in Oregon where its still cool (today it actually snowed 2 inches) but I ordered my queen from a company in Kentucky. Walter T. Kelly. They are online. If it were possible I would graft a queen but again, too cold. Best recommendation is to search online and don't give up. Good luck to you.
