I'm glad I don't have to buy bees from aways off. There was at least one beek in our club that last year sold 5 frame Nuc's for 90, pick up only. And the queens I have been getting, the beek has at least 2 bee yards miles apart, one is Russian the other is Cordovan, I have been buying them for 20 and I pick them up. The three established hives I purchased to start with, although in bad repair, I gave 400 for the three. Good luck to you all.
