Why you buy packages every year?
bdbee, the only thing I can think is that something happened to supply for late April. March would have been too early for us to start packages weather-wise. I just wonder what the issue is. I know who the suppliers are in Georgia but they don't have much info about anything on their website. Whether it was weather, whether it was poor queen mating availability, whether it was over demand, I don't know.We got 10 packages w/ queens that were sent up from Georgia as scheduled on 27 March.
Yeah. Last year the packages were delayed due to lots of rain issues down south. I can't believe this year is even later. All I can figure is it has to do with poor queen mating.See post #13 of this thread for an indirect explanation of the delay: http://www.beesource.com/forums/sho...ill-I-ever-get-my-nukes&p=1102375#post1102375
