I am a new beekeeper. I first ordered from Dadant weeks back. They could not tell me when my order would ship due to thier seasonal load. I cancelled the order after 10 days and they still could not tell me anything. I have found out that most of the suppliers are in the same two week cycle of filling orders. Don't quite understand their business methods. Must be nice for them to be so casual. When my Dad ran his business, he ran the business even during the peak times. One business told me that if it was really critical they could get it out for an extra $10. I have never delt with an industry that pretty much everyone does this casual get it out when you feel like it. During the non peak season in beekeeping is it this bad in getting supplies?
