Huh?
They didnt ship her overnight? Or they didnt ship her at all?
Waiting on a mail order queen is really stressful... In my book. Gotta be on red alert in this heat.

I ordered them in December for a May delivery, and still haven't seen them or heard from the shipper. Just all the more reason for me to test out my Nicot system I suppose.

I ordererd queens and paid for them last October  for delivery in May and I too am waiting.  I heard once that they needed my zip code and once that the company had poor mating results with a batch.  I tend to get most resentful and bitter when I note that they are still taking orders and have even given extra queens to people because their shipment was late.   I was a cheerleader and defended these people for a long time.  Not so much anymore.

What kind of queens are you trying to get?  I get mine local, there's 3 or so queen sellers within 40 miles.  Just call and drive over and pick her up.  Good luck on ya'lls queens.

I had ordered a few German AMM's and some Caucasians, I cant really see that a large commercial guy had snagged all the German's for himself. Even if I got them now, I couldnt really use them. I needed them around May when they were supposed to ship.
