Re: Aggressive Bees in an Old Hive
Unless you are withing driving distance of someone selling bees, most people buying bees will have them shipped (USPS or UPS). If they are getting shipped, then you have a lot of potential vendors. Many will start taking reservations/orders sometime in December.

If you are not a member of a local bee club, see if you can find one. Many clubs will place a group order for bees, usually at a good price, and this may also assist in the transportation issue.
