    Default Looking for "regressed" bees for sale

    Hi all,
    I am looking for sources that are selling "regressed" or "natural size" bee packages and/or NUCs for sale.

    I am trying to compile a list so visitors to my website and listeners of my Podcast have a place to buy their bees. Heck, I may buy from you too!

    So if you have bees that have been regressed to 4.9mm or are on naturally drawn comb and are thriving please let me know!

    Best,
    SoMDBeekeeper

    There are some people on here from time to time that advertise. Most are small (100 hives or less) beekeepers selling a few. Don seems to be the one with a pretty large output.

    I ended up with 4 hives of small cell bees I was able to purchase. Two of those have been crossed with the Fatbeeman's stock so I am happy about that.

    I also caught a feral swarm in May that is drawing 4.9 beautifully.

    And finally, I got two Nucs of Minnesota hygienics that I am regressing down to 4.9 so all-in-all I'm off and running.

    Cheers,

    I sell natural comb/small cell treatment free nucs. Pickup only though at this time. Small scale beekeeper (25-30 hives). I'm also a psychologist so I can help with those regressed bees. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is probably the way to go ; ).
