    Default Looking for package bees in wv

    We are looking for packages of Carnolian bees within three hour drive of charleston wv. We might settle for Italian but would really like the Carnolian.

    The Honey and Bee Connection in Morehead, KY sells packages and Nucs. www.thehoneyandbeeconnection.com. It's probably a 2 hour drive for you.

    Getting Carniolan packages on the East Coast is tough to near impossible. Lots of Italians sold every year, and lots of Italians sold as Carniolan. Not much in the way of true Carniolan. You may want to try to find Nucs instead of Packages.

    If you drive fast it may be less than 3 hours. Check out Simpsons: http://www.simpsonsbeesupply.com/
