I am having trouble finding sites to order bees online and have them shipped.  I see that they are for sale on Pigeon Mountain Trading Company, and I was wondering if this is a good site to order from.  Is there a better one?  Any advice?  Thanks!!!

Aren't you up north? (filling your location in your profile would help) Most (not all by a long shot) northern beeks prefer to buy northern bees in that they may be acclimated to northern weather.

Kellybees.com is a long time highly reputable supplier of bees and equipment.  I don't use them because the shipping would kill me but you never hear a bad word about their products and you hear good things about their bees.  Ya know, Danno is from your general vicinity.  You should PM him and ask where he gets his bees and supplies.  Maybe he would sell you bees if he has extras or know someone local who does.  THe advice that comes from the closest to your bee yard is usually preferable to someone far away and danno has a good head.

Thank you both for your input.  I've been looking at Spille Honey as well...they are closer to my area and have Russians (which I was looking for)!

Check to see if there is a local bee club, you may fine someone there with what you want.  Or they can recomend someone local.

I would definitely recommend looks elsewhere and not buying from pigeon mountain if at all possible.   My experience is they have very poor communications and customer service.   You can read about my dealings with them here -> http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,38217.msg325573.html#msg325573
