    I must be losing it....I was on your site late one night and it was going to allow me to order queens from an online store (I thought). I went back this AM to complete the transaction, and lo, no online store!?. I'll call or email, but do you have online ordering option, and when are 2014 survivor queens available? Thanks.
    I don't keep bees, I tend bees. Does this make me a beet?

    I am not sure what happened there. We start shipping in a couple weeks and are currently booking orders for early June. There will probably be some spot availability before then depending on how good the mating conditions are. I will be posting here anytime there is surplus available.

    We will have nice queens available from cells like these.

    Yields have been very good so we can take some more early June orders.

    Since they came in nucs I should be able to start grafting this week. We should have them mated and laying in about 4 weeks give or take. They were about a month late getting here but are looking really good and no introduction period necessary.
