    Re: Mass Bee suicide?

    Didn't feed them. They were a swarm and I put in a comb with some brood to anchor them and capped honey up top. At the time there were six hives in the same yard, no other showing any symptoms at...

    Bee Weavers does... I think. And there is a member here Honey-for-All who does. Check Craigslist and any classifieds in local bee clubs or state association. It is a bit late though obviously.
