    Default International Shipping

    I was online looking for some buckfast queens. I found some old country buckfast queens from Ireland. If I wanted to order these queens, what kind of hoops would I have to jump through to get the queens into the US.

    Thank you for the quick info. I already called and got the info being emailed to me for the permit. I also got the number for the bee expert Wayne Wehling to talk to about the import of the bees.
