    Default What is the longest time your queens were in transit/mail?

    I got my queen today. Was shipped May 5th from Kentucky. Was called May 7th from a PO that was 50 miles away, they had my bees. Called them Monday the 11th. No bees here. Guess they took the scenic route. All of them, even the attendants were alive. Postmaster gave them a drop of water.
    11 days in the mail. Tough stock??/?

    Nice postmaster, we had a great post office in Orlando, College Park. They would call and deliver them without stopping anywhere else.

    Who did the queens come from? Some of my best bees were KY bees, All were feral captures though.

    They would have been in the cages much longer than your transit time, Kelley buys the queens they sell out of Mt Vernon GA.

    I wonder how long can queens last in a cage if they can't be istalled because of days of heavy rain?
