    Default Recomendations on Alabama Bee Breeders

    Anyone know of any good italian bee breeders in Alabama that preferably sell nucs but packages are ok too. Trying to get a head start on lining stuff up for the spring.

    Thanks

    I'm sure some Bama area people will be chiming in. I know there are a bunch of suppliers next door in GA. It's a good idea to get things lined up now, but don't hold on to the info and wait until spring to order. Most suppliers start taking orders mid Nov-Dec. for spring delivery. Order them as soon as you can.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.
    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.

    I have purchased in the past from Ted down at the Alabama Bee Company. phone: 256-825-0370. He's down 280 in Dadeville, just past Lake Martin. Last year, I ordered a few from different guys. They all told me they'd be ready by April. None of them came thru with that date except Ted. His nucs were the only ones that ended up producing a full super of honey.
    His are 4 frames and you keep the nuc box. Each nuc I purchased from him was a GREAT producer of brood and honey. I think it was $90.
    He's a really nice guy that will also be happy to help you with any questions.
