Hi! Hank the bee guy in Burlington will phone me when the bees arrive. I went down last week for supplies, and will place an order soon through Brushy Mt. in North Carolina. Best way to reach me is leave me your phone number & email. Then we can text each other. Remind me how many hives you have and what type of bees, and if you're still living in Emerald Lake area or moved.
