    Exclamation Need 100-150+ packages..

    I know it's late but does anyone still have 100-150+ packages still available. Looking for late-March to early-April. Just let me know, thanks.

    with a national average of 80% package failure, gotta ask why? when you may only have 25 of those package at the end of the season...maybe

    with the same investment on full double deep hives you can harvest honey, increase and make nucs for next season.

    I don't understand the waste of cash in beekeeping with packages and nucs.

    Respectfully David, I am not the one selling the packages but I am a consumer of packages and at least with these packages I have an average loss of about 10%. My typical overall apiary losses are about 10% annually. Not sure where you are buying package bees and having an 80% loss but maybe you should look for another supplier.
