I'd try to find someone close.  Better yet find a club or an outlet that is close where you can pick them up.  The USPS sometimes does a great job and sometimes does a terrible job.  It's pretty sad to get a lot of drowned bees because the Post Office laid the package on it's side and the syrup ran out and drowned all the bees.
