    Arrow Bee Oueens and Package Provider List

    I thought it would be helpful to start a thread on BeeSource compiling United States queen and honeybee package providers as a resource for those needing to buy them. All are welcome to add your favorite provider so fellow beekeepers can have quick access to resources when they need to buy, as well as any accolades or criticisms of those on this list.

    I have a listing on the soon to be released site:
    http://wordpress.beesource.com/bees-...united-states/

    I have moved away from lists as the one above as there is no way to confirm most of these suppliers. I will only list suppliers that either have a website or are members here and they provide me with all the required contact info and keep it updated.

    Thanks Barry... it seems so much easier to check them out online, when I can at night , instead of calling each one when I am busy during the day sometimes.

    I see you have nothing for Pennsylvania, which there are three one the abpve list, including Bjorn. I did a Yahoo search and found they do have websites.

    If you want I can look up the web address for you. Let me know.

    Thanks again.
