Re: Why do Queen Bee prices not fluctuate based on seasonal demand?
I appreciate the free market.
If the price is too high sales will suffer.
There are always other vendors that buyers can chose from.
But what about quality?
And what about your position of seniority as a long term customer in getting early queens and large orders?
I look at things as a relationship. A long term trust relationship.
Oh, and when I receive an invoice from queen producers, or anyone else for that matter, the check goes out in the mail the very next day.
As a small scale queen producer for in-house use only, understanding the problems, I really appreciate being able to pick up the phone and have a box of queens magically appear at my doorstep.
I have exactly ONE more hive than you.
That makes my opinion beyond dispute!
