I'm buying my bees from Donald Porter from porterfarmbees.com. He is located in Easley SC. He came and spoke at the Mid-State Beekeeping Assoc. He is a great guy and loves to talk about beeking. His phone number is on his website and if you are interested you should call him. He talked to me for approx. 2 hours. I liked his honesty and work ethic... He said he would replace any queen that dies even if it meant him coming to your house to do it. He is a member of the USDA Russian bee breeders Assoc. If you are not a member of the Mid-State Beekeeping Assoc. you should join. They are having a beginners course starting in Jan. it's $40 and it covers the membership to both the local and state Assoc. and all the materials for the course.

Good luck.
