Lloyd and Bob have pretty good reputations - but I haven't had bees from any of these guys, so I can't say from experience.

I should have the first posting of my package price list ready by late December. Many of the larger package suppliers do not post their prices until January - so I typically do two posts: the first is about 3/4 complete and the last (usually mid-late January) is as complete as I can get it.

Presently though, 3lb packages are averaging $104.05 - and that doesn't include shipping!

first off thanks Tyro for the tri state clarification.... doesn't every state have a 'tri state' area??

:goodpost:

I suppose that for Long Island, it could also mean NY, Connecticut and NJ as well! But you are right, although our 'tri-state area' here in ND is Montana, South Dakota and Saskatchewan!

I actually grew up in Troy - so 'my' tri-state area would be MA, VT and NY as well.
