    Default Anyone selling mated queens?

    I have just combined a swarm I caught a few weeks ago with a hive that didn't perform well (both are queenless) and need a mated queen for them. Any suggestions on where I can find a mated queen this time of year?

    Rossmans won't have any queens until May. Was looking for something sooner than that. I placed a frame with brood from my larger hive in there so I may have a queen they raised by May. Was just hoping for something sooner.

    I may be way off on this brain storm so please correct me if I am.

    If you have another hive maybe you could take the queen out of it and allow the stronger hive to make another one.

    Velazquez apiaries might have some. They have good cordovan queens.

    Why is a swarm queenless?
