    Default Anyone have queens in Polk County, FL?

    Hello,

    I was hoping to get a queen very soon and not have to worry about shipping time and shipping charges.

    Anyone local here in Polk County, FL have any queens they may want to sell?

    I am in Lakeland.

    Small-cell a big plus.

    Yep, I called Miksa last week. They are out, as Mbeck said.

    I have put in an email to the following producer in Polk County, but they are 41 miles away from me.....that's like 500 bucks in gas......MAN !!!:

    Here's my dilemma.

    I went ahead a switched-out a trap-out hive because I figured if the queen wasn't in there yet, I'd have enough bees to get off the ground if I just threw a queen in there when I got them home.

    So do you all think I may have jumped-the-gun on the amount of bees needed to begin a hive?

    I know it's hard to tell, but something like this:




    Here's the other hive I left there in its place. The bees immediately took to it.
