Being a business student, I can't help but wonder why people have such a hard time finding bees and queens midway through or towards the end of the season. It appears that bee suppliers cannot ever keep up with demand. Why are suppliers not able to provide bees year-round? The laws of economics would suggest that if money was to be made (demand existed) then the supply would increase. Is there something I'm not understanding? Perhaps the biology of the bee does not allow for collecting and/or shipping of bees outside of spring. Can someone fill me in?
