Like to take a moment and say that the Dadant warehouse in Paris Texas does a great job. Called in my order last week, they had the needed items on hand. Went and picked them up yesterday. While we were there they let us roam thru the warehouse, the youngest colored a picture for them, and overall it was a great experience. Not only have I used them before, I will use them again.
As a side note on the way back home, just outside of a little town on HWY 271, seen what looked like to my eye dozens and dozens and dozens of palliated beehives. Would love to know who they belong to, since beekeepers with that many hives are commercial and I have yet to watch a commercial operation in action.
