    Here's a clue .... your attitude.

    I have delt a great deal with Brushy Mtn. and have found them to be reasonable and most helpful even if it may have been my fault.

    If you weren't "So famous" on this forum you are now. WOW! I wake up to this... Surprised the computer didn't crash with laughter on its own last night.

    Welcome to the world "notorious"

    You came here claiming to be looking for "advice" and haven't seem to get what you wanted. I apologize. WA-Wa-Wa. In hindsight what I think you were really looking for someone to confirm why you were unhappy with BM. Sorry you didn't get consent. Looks like most folks are happy with them. My experience with them has been online only and we got our stuff... They get a B+ rating from me. No tears or spats of fits regarding bad service from me.

    As for the rest of your recent responses:

    There are two types of advice. General and specific. Beesource and life contains both. Those who are unable to learn from the "general" and figure it out from there need specific advice. Many folks here tried to give general advice so you could "figure it out yourself" regarding your situation. I doubt you would either accept or "learn" from specific advice even if it had been given regarding your situation. ( considering your recent tirade).

    Its a sunny day in northern California. Old saying ("advice" for those of you living North of Phili ) says make hay when the sun shines so I think I'm out of here to check hives and toss on syrup as needed.

    You asked for it should try to contribute to beekeeping and not beat up on a company that works hard for beekeepers and the bees.
    I know in todays times thing are alot harder to make money and sometimes the money is not worth the stress the customer causes .
    I see you can stump you feet can't you?
    Hope you get along with your bees.

    sfamous,
    You Posted your encounter from your point of view and explained and illustrated things from your point of view. I still don't know what you did wrong, but I don't have Brushy Mountain PA's point of view. So, I only have part of the story. So, what do you want from us? Advice? Agreement? A shoulder to cry on? Unmitigated support?

    I believe you have gotten good advice from a number of people on this Forum, starting w/ Oldtimer.

    Patronize another supplier. Get over it. Move on. Try BetterBee. They are under new management. Dadant in Waverly,NY is a good group of guys to work with.

    And with that one response (not even considering the swordfish remark) you confirm our our assumptions.

    I believe it is you who are out of your depth.

    So who's fault is it that you are not catching swordfish? The fish, the pool, or the fisherman?

    I wasn't 100% sure what the real issue was when I read your original post. Now I know beyond a shadow of a doubt what the real problem was.

    Silly bean, you need to get off shore to catch the big ones. Unfortunately, it looks like your vessel won't stand up to heavy seas though.

    If your attitude towards us is anything like your attitude towards brushy I certainly can't blame them. You strike me as one of those folks who the whole department knows your there and employees take turns dealing with you. Some of the bee supplys, especially the smaller ones, can be a wealth of knowledge, and can save your rear in a pinch. Dont burn bridges.

    Sometime in all of our lives we have been the "kid" who knows nothing, most of us get through it.

    All of us come into this world knowing nothing, with the possible exception of the OP.
