    Re: Hardeman Queens

    You never gave a reason you would stay clear of the Weavers. Could you please tell me why? I just ordered a package from them and would like to know if I need to cancel.

    Of course they're not going to guarantee the bees. They don't claim total immunity. Anybody that would assume that's what they mean is goofy...kind of like that woman who spilled coffee in her lap...
