Re: Busy Bees Apiaries Package Delay
mmm I just love those greedy suppliers! Let's see, hurricanes, tornadoes, rising fuel prices, crazy spring weather, mistake by employee, theft, certainly all those things and more make life extremely easy for greedy suppliers. Sad that one wants to help his customers that he overbooks, thinking he'll be able to produce enough queens or packages... wonder how many of us have never been guilty of miscalculations? Misjudgments? Our hopes exceed our abilities?

I learned from my mistakes, and planned last summer for this spring. My plans are working out, except for 5 of my colonies - two now queenless. So I scramble to find what I need, but don't blame the supplier. Just a simple fact of nature. In fact, the weather was apparently good in south Texas, and my supplier is ahead of schedule...going to start a thread about that now.
