    Bee curious, I have tried that, and my stethoscope is of pretty good quality, and I cant hear a darn thing. Very frustrating, so I just get my ear close to the vent holes in the quilt box and can...

    Re: The price of bees

    I would guess a lot of it is location and demand also. Bought pkgs last year for $85.00 and a nuc for 100.00. I see for this year the pkgs have gone up $10.00
