We are looking for packages of Carnolian bees within three hour drive of charleston wv. We might settle for Italian but would really like the Carnolian.
The Honey and Bee Connection in Morehead, KY sells packages and Nucs. www.thehoneyandbeeconnection.com. It's probably a 2 hour drive for you.
Jim Coss in Morehead. Don't know about breed though. Thehoneyandbeeconnection.com
Beat me to it.
His are Italian or Italian/Carniolan mix.
Getting Carniolan packages on the East Coast is tough to near impossible. Lots of Italians sold every year, and lots of Italians sold as Carniolan. Not much in the way of true Carniolan. You may want to try to find Nucs instead of Packages.
Thanks for the replies. That seems like a promising lead.
If you drive fast it may be less than 3 hours. Check out Simpsons: http://www.simpsonsbeesupply.com/
Wade Stiltner near Fort Gay WV has new world carniolan nucs. He is a state apiarist for wv.
