    Default JZsBZs cell cups

    Hi there, I am wondering if anyone knows if JZsBZs is still in business? Their website is down, and both of their phone numbers are disconnected. I know that a person can purchase the cups at places like Mann lake etc, but I am looking to purchase very large quantities of them. Any suggestions?

    Thank you very much for everyone's help!

    Most manufacturers sell their products to customers through vendors. I have always purchased JZBZ products through Mann Lake. Did not even know you could buy directly from them. May be they decided to sell their products through usual route.

    Larry Connor made mention of a family member passing away last year at the SNEBA meeting in CT and stated that their could be some problems with future production. Not sure where things are but I have to imagine someone will cover the loss if this happens

    Oh my gosh! I can't image commercial queen production without them. Yet, it's not the first time a critical, expensive to develop component, has been lost to a niche market like beekeeping. Those production molds are very expensive to create.

    Better start saving and reclaiming those cups, rather than throwing them away.

    Here's how I do it:

    Do you think they will be back up and running in that amount of time? Or that just buys you enough time to convert to another system?
