    They are available from Mann Lake, but you still can get them directly from Jim if you need them by the 1000. See http://hometown.aol.com/jzsbzs/myhomepage/business.html

    Jim Paysen has not quit the "Queen Plastic " business. The last thing Jim would ever do is quit anything!!!!!! He has moved to California to live full time with his wife. During the prime time plastic season in the late winter & early spring months he would reside at his home in Tyler Texas. He has all of his plastic dies & molds with him & has set up business & shipping from California. Please give him a call as I do believe that the plastic parts can be purchased cheeper thru him, the manufacture than any distributor. Check out his neat web site. Just a side note to this as some of you may know there are a small group of beekeepers that seem to think that Jim charges to much $$$$$ for his plastic queen parts. So they took it upon themselfs to hire our little China copy cat friends to duplicate Jim's 25 plus years of perfection in this fine art. Pretty sick I think. I know the last queen cage die cost was near the equilvent of nearly 3 new F-350 Power Stroke Diesels. It takes a bunch of cage & cup orders to pay for a deal like that.

    I just purchased from Jim and received my shipment before X-mas. Very easy and pleasant to deal with.

    Yes Jim and his products are excellent and we don't use anything else in our queen rearing operation here in Cyprus.
    Best regards
