    Default Package near Chicago?

    Does anyone know where I might still find a package for sale within 50 miles of Chicago? My hive died over last winter, and I realize I am late in getting started again this year. It is too late to order a package through the mail, but I am willing to drive 50 miles to purchase a package.
    Thanks.

    Dennis,

    Have you tried local bee club swarms or cut out captures? Usually they're free or maybe $50.00 bucks or so. I got three of my last hives through going on all the local bee club sites and requesting a colony. Two were free and one was $50.00.

    Good Luck,

    Charlie in SF
