Mostly April or May, plus you want to order them in the fall or they may not be available when you call in the spring.

Packages bees are considered a Spring time acquisition.  Usually if you haven't order your queens by March 1st you are out of luck ot have to search real hard for a supplier will to fill late orders.  
Nuc's can be purchased until about the 1st of May.  Later and the odds of be the bees successfully wintering dec lines rapidly.
