    Re: Russell Apiaries

    I just saw through my email that somebody replied with the name "the doc" and I got excited for a minute. Thought maybe Robert Russell himself came here to offer us an apology. Sorry for assuming...

    Re: Russell Apiaries

    I hate Robert Russell Apiaries. I have sent at least 60 emails with no response. I have no patience for a dirty thief and have given up all hope of ever getting my money back.

    Re: Russell Apiaries

    I'd have to think long and hard about becoming a sub producer for a company that straight up stole so many beekeepers hard earned cash. I've been fighting for a refund for almost a year now and I'm...

    I like Mann Lake, employee owned, free shipping for over $100 bucks. I've had great luck with customer service. They were recommended to me and I've never had any problems, so that is who I will...

    Did you buy your hive, or build it yourself? The important thing to get the bees started, which they already seem to be, is to have something for them to start building from. I have one top bar...
