with you being in arizona, you might buy from a california dealer, you will probably have to call them , heres a list and some have web sites, try some. you can see thier adresses, numbers. now you will have to choose what kind of bee's you want.

You can get addresses online for major package producers in the U.S. at http://beesource.com/suppliers/usbees.htm
I bought my package at Spell Bee Co. however, being in Georgia they may not geographicly work out for you.  They have them sepparated by state and list phone numbers, e-mail, web sites and addresses as well as what race they sell.
