    Default queen needed, anyone know of a reliable source this time of year

    Looks like my only hive is now queenless. Anyone know of a reliable source that has queens in stock this time of year? Not having much luck on google. I am in the UP of Michigan. Thanks for any leads.

    beeweaver and koehnen both show that they are sold out of queens for 2012. Ebert does not say either way on their website.

    http://www.ohbees.com

    Give them a try, they are large producer in CA and have queens pretty late in the year.

    There are a few places in Florida that have queens most of the year. The names don't really come to me however. Must think about it a bit.
