Came across this old magazine while sorting through my great-grandmothers old house. Quite a find! Back when average price for a 3-lb package of bees was around $4.50, and mated queens cost $1.60 each. Of all the ads (there are a LOT), I believe I came across just a handful of companies that are still in business.
