I saw this on the Phil Craft Hive Craft website:
Meeting tommorrow night. Thurs. Nov. 7 @ 6:30 @ the extension office. It is not to early to start thinking about ordering bees next spring. We will be placing orders in Feb. and March. You will need to decide how many packages of bees you think you will want and start getting your wooden ware ready. The packages will be $85 per swarm this year according to Arliss. This could change a little high or low, but you could work on this price.
We worked our hives and gave them some bee cakes and they love them.
