    Just look at a copy of Bee Culture or American Bee Journal and pick from one of the 5,675,899 queen breeders that advertise there.

    Go to the Beesource homepage. Look on the left side of the page, for the link that reads BEES AND SUPPLIES.
    Click on that link. Then click on the link that reads BEES. Then start calling one of those that are there. LOL
    Or, you can call R.Weaver Apiaries (936) 825-2333. Risa's a nice lady, just kinda no nonsence type.
    They start shipping queens in March.

    Thanks I'll thy some of them. But I guess I am looking for someone who produces queens that will work and last up here in South Dakota. I read to much about queens that don't last.

    I have two. They have survived their first winter treatment-free. One is a little hot, the other is a little more hot. Also, they are more than just Carniolans. The website includes SMR/VSH Italian.

    They meet criteria one for me, and a little iffy on criteria two, we'll see how they pan out.
