    Default Betterbee selling packages again..

    http://www.betterbee.com/s.nl/it.A/i...&category=3936

    Hmmm... I might try ordering from them again. Price looks not bad either. I wish they had (tentative) dates listed.

    Edit: Just called and they are shooting for late April.

    wixson usually sells good nucs also for a very reasonable price. Much better results than pkg bees .

    also forgot Dadant in waverly sells packages, not sure about nucs and they are also close to you.

    funwithbees dan uses meds so I guess thats why he is looking for packages, but would probably go for a nuc if he could find one.

    Met 2 of the new owners last Nov at SNEBA.Seem to be good guys intent on turning the place around.
    I stopped at BB yesterday to pick up some frames,foundation and a new catalog.
    Packages are from Wilbanks but they will be selling local carny queens in June.
    Spring nucs will have local carny queens and overwintered nucs will come from Mike Palmer and Jack Rath(one of the owners) in VT
    I'd like to get their nuc prices!!
