Hi:
I had planned to start a couple nucs this fall to replace any that I might loose through the winter but I guess I have waited to long for there isn't any Italian queens to be found at least I can't find any and I've made at least 15 calls.
Anyway my question is: I live in the upstate of S.C about 30 miles below Charlotte N.C. our climate isn't too harsh but we do have a good many cold days. Has any in this area raised there own queens this late and wintered them through to spring. I dont' mind feeding if they have a chance to make it!
I appreciate any comments and helpful hints that apply to this situation not only from this area but from anywhere with simular climate.
Thanks
Gerald

I don't have any Italians.  I'm in a colder climate.  But I do have queens from feral survivors.

$19 per queen.  $16 handling per shipment.

My guess is if you look at Beesource or anywhere else that lists queen breeders you can find lots of queens of any race you like.
