    Re: Russian Bees

    I have a question about the "just in case" or "emergency" queen cells that Russian colonies produce. At what point do the workers tear them down if they do not need them? Before or after they are...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiary

    I don't want blood, I just want my bees. I am just another customer caught up in a mess that I don't want to be in. What did the others do to get their bees?

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    Long Creek posted on it's website that this is the last week they will be shipping packages. It looks like those of us that don't get bees this week will not get any. Last week he emailed me and...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    I checked my email and David said that robbing from a lack of nectar flow is causing the delays. He said they just got some rain, so the nectar flow might start again. He will call me when they...

    Francus,

    I am still waiting as well. The only time he responded was when I posted on this thread. Maybe he will contact you now? He told me in May that I have the option of bees or a refund. ...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiary

    I hope that I don't turn out to be another one who got ripped off. Before reading about Long Creek on this website, I ordered five packages of Russian bees. According to his website, the only delay...
