    Default Fleet Farm Beekeeping Supplies

    I head a rumor from a reliable source that Fleet Farm in Wisconsin will be selling beekeeping supplies.

    We must have entered "peak beekeeping".

    I wonder how many beekeepers they will have on staff to answer questions and advise new beekeepers

    Has anyone else heard this?

    I haven't heard that yet.. I have an insider in Appleton that I can ask on Saturday.

    I would venture to guess that the list of knowledgeable beeks they will have on payroll will be small. But it would be cool to have one or more......nothing better than BS'n in Fleet on a cold morning...

    It will be interesting to see what "brand" they sell. I fear for all the honeybees that will be put in harms way without their beekeepers having a clue.

    I seen that at the Coastal hardware in Gresham. They claimed they were packages with hygienic queens. They were 2x the cost of the bees from the club, the gear was all built and also very expensive. It was a thick paint.
