    Default Lost my Queen this weekend need one fast

    Hi all I am pretty sure one of my hives went queenless this past week. Any one know where I can get a queen this late in the year. I am in Santa Cruz CA so I really don't get cold weather just rain and some frost in Dec as we are only a few miles from the Pacific. I know I can combine but would rather not go down to one hive.

    I recently ordered queens from these guys. They are issuing two more shipment dates before the end of the season.

    Before buying queens from other suppliers be sure to check out their
    reviews. Make sure you have the gentle type bees to spread the good
    genetics around. If you cannot find a supplier then PM me. Remembered
    how frustrated it was on my first year hunting down the bees and queen for
    my small apiary in the middle of winter. Many will not sell me one going through
    the same situation. Ended up baby sitting 1 small frame of bees with a new mated queen all
    winter long.
    Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
