    Default Queens

    Anyone have queens for around 15 bucks each? I am needing 10-15 in the next several weeks. Amount depends on price. Need nothing special other than something to lay eggs, eggs, and more eggs until next spring.
    Probably an Italian or strain thereof would work. Let me know what you have.
    Thanks

    Mike -
    I've had pretty good luck with Bob Harvey's bees out of Florida. He was selling them for about $13 each.

    I read that lots of beeks replace their queens in the fall, "pinching" them. Too bad we can't hook up with one of them and get some queens cheap. I too would like some Queens for overwintering some nucs, as long as they can still lay I don't care about much else, they will be replaced in the spring.
