In case you need bee packages.....
« on: January 17, 2014, 02:47:55 PM »
I was in Rossman's today and they said they were still taking orders for packages. I was surprised because I know the last couple of years they would sell out within 3 days of taking orders.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would
not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything You gave me"

Sorry, I didn't think to ask and it's not noted on their website. Here is the phone number if you are interested. 1-800-333-7677

Rob our club preorders nucs every year from a GA supplier. I think we have a few extras if you want me to check. They are $120 and in the past they were exceptional.

Yes they are five frame deeps. They come from the Unadilla, Ga area.
