This is why I asked. The add appeared on Craigslist Thursday night. I thought it was way too high, but like another post said, "they are worth what someone is willing to pay."
Honey Bees - Start BeeKeeping TODAY! - Sold Out - $75 (Milton)
These bees went quickly. If you want to be notified when we have more available please send a text-only message to the number below. Anyone thinking about getting into beekeeping? Today is your day, we captured 4 swarms off our hive today (06-06-13), each one needs a new home. They're swarmed off our BeeWeaver bred honeybees, which are disease resistant, mite tolerant and heavy honey producers. They need to be picked up today or early tomorrow at the latest and you have to have an empty hive ready to go.
I'll vouch for how amazing the honey is from these bees, we collected over 35lbs the first year from our new bees, split the hive once and they are really easy bees to work with. None of our bees have been treated with antibiotics or chemicals of any kind. They are free of mites and foul-brood
