    Default Where to buy those cans of syrup and Bee Package Cages?

    Where does everyone buy the 3-5 pound bee package cages and those tin cans of syrup that goes in them?

    Without the bees of course, we are planning on selling a few 100 packages this year after almonds.

    Try Koehnens for the cans if you want the big hole and want to fill the cans yourself. If you want them already filled in the sealed cans get a hold of Pankratz.

    I have a buddy who knows where to access the empty cans if you want to waste your day filling them yourself. He got us a pallet full last year. Waiting for him to cough up the info so I dont have to hassle him this coming year.

    Thanks for the leads.

    Yes I am looking for the type of cans already sealed.

    The empty cans are available at Home Depot or on line, but expensive.

    Sealed and filled cans. Get a hold of Leonard.

    f you don't already have it in your plans you might want to hit the road to attend the Nor Cal queen breeders meeting in a few weeks. He should be there (never been there when he wasn't) and you will get a good earful on the early trends on pollination prices.
