    Wow, it never would have occurred to me that NY beekeepers would buy California packages in the spring! I have to wonder why...Georgia and Florida packages are readily available in April and May, and because of transportation costs I guess would be less expensive than packages from California. BTW, I DO NOT sell packages, so have no conflict in that regards.

    The packages sold by Mann Lake in Pa. come from Olivera in Calif. so many would probably be brought to NY.

    Mann lakes packages come on time in early april, no beetles. They seem to produce better than the ones from Ga. The ones we bought in years past from GA were usually in May, and quite often delayed due to weather. The Ga packages were less money. Treatment free? NO WAY!
