    We ordered 10 NWC queens which were shipped from Ca. Wed. and shipped to our Florence SC. yard instead of NY by mistake. They can't be forwarded or returned so if someone can use them let me know right away. They will have to be picked up. They are in a shipping box which is likely overcrowded so time is of the essence.

    I would love to have one but not 10. Is anyone closer to this side of SC thinking of going and get them? Its about as far across the state as you can get from me. But I would come get one from you... or two...

    I would pay someone to ship them here to Morganton,NC. They would arrive here very quick! It's about 3 1/2 hour drive or about 225 miles from here.

    Thanks for the responses, the winner has been notified by e mail.

    In order to save the shipper having to me send new queens my dad took them to UPS and despite the package being unopened could not forward the queens w/o a certificate of inspection from SC. My dad is feeding the queens but usually the battery boxes are overcrowded with attendants and the bees have a tendency to over heat. I hope they survive to lay another day.
