I know this is short notice but I'm combining my hives ASAP
and will have two marked & laying (R. Weaver) queens
available to anyone in my area who wants them.

Please note, the bees in question are NOT GARANTEED in any
way, shape or form and must be picked up by you in Garland.

If you want them, please send an Email or Private Message
ASAP, so I can build wire cages for the queens & attendants
to allow them to survive for a couple of days outside the hive.

If contacted by 4PM today, I can wait a day or two before doing the
 combine, allowing time to build the cages and make pickup arrangements.

If no one comes forward by this afternoon, my intention is to
make swarm lure from them and I would consider this a major waste.

Again let me apologize for the hasty decision, but pests (flies & ants)
are stressing my hives and I need to fix it NOW.

I couldn't try to convince you to mail them to me in Florida?

Sorry fellas, but as it turns out two of the hives had pretty
much absconded (new packages) due to ants.
So at this point, I'm not even sure I have two queens left,
let alone two extras embarassed  embarassed  embarassed  embarassed

I've done what I can for now and hope that the population increase
will make the difference for the two remaining hives.

After they eat through the paper I'm hopeful the queens from the
two feral swarms I captured this spring, will move into the drawn
comb the packages built and start laying eggs in them.

One good thing, was the fact that there was pollen & nectar in most
of the frames from the absconded hives, so the queens should start
laying eggs in them once things settle down.
