    Default does anyone sell queenless packages

    I'm looking for a supplier of early season worker bees so I have a work force to introduce to a hive with a queen cell of my own making. Does anyone know if there are package bee suppliers that will ship without a mated queen (and for a discounted price than a regular package)?

    Thanks. I would have thought a queen was worth a $30 credit instead of $5.

    Actually found a place an hour north of me that has packages with queens for less than $100, so I ordered a few. Will just have to find good homes for the old gals when I bring them home and introduce a queen cell. Guess I can keep the mated queen in the cage in the hive while the local one gets mated. Should anchor the new group of bees nicely. Y'all just do me a favor and don't tell my husband. I will be in SO much trouble for getting more bees.
