    There are some folks in Shreveport that sell complete hives on Craigslist.

    He will probably have to buy nucs or hives in Alabama. I don't think they allow any bees on comb to come into the state.

    Off topic, sorry: Being from Alabama I have also noted the law that does not allow any nuc/hive product to be brought into the state. Does anyone know if there a valid reason for this law? Is it only to keep beekeepers from buying hives from out of state or does it also restrict someone from just transporting bees through Alabama? Who enforces such a law?

    Sorry Richard, I am also still looking for a local contact so I can get started early. If I find someone I will let you know.

    Not a problem. There some folks here in Bama that will have them next month. I can hook you up with some #'s if you want. I just want em now. Just lost a weak hive, and am sick.
