We ordered 100 queens from B Weaver last spring and I had the worst experience I have ever had with a queen producer. They didn't put enough attendants in the box to cover the queens so most of them were chilled. Of the ones accepted most of those were replaced by the bees within 4-6 weeks. Several of these "natural" queens were very hot. We suspected Africanized traits surfacing. I am talking about bees that attack you when you get out of the truck at the bee yard, before you have a chance to suit up or light a smoker.

My biggest complaint with B Weaver is the fact that Danny would never call me back even though the gal who I spoke to assured me he would. I have dealt with a lot of different queen breeders and have never been treated so poorly. Every other breeder who had problems with their shipments made good on the shipment.
