Not sure what the price is around your way, but in PA they are going for around $80.00, especially if you wait until the last minute. I did hear people getting them for around $65.00 shipped but those orders were in months ago.
paid $54. last year, and $63. this year from same supplier. Pkgs are hard to find in the south this year and most people are sold out till May.One friend of mine lost 9 colonies over the winter to starvation due to the extreme cold winter. Have heard of some pkgs going for $80. It's a sellers market this year.
