I have someone that’s wanting the hive it in 2-3 weeks, but it’s whoever shows up first gets it. Price is still $650, includes the bees, which are already established and laying queen now. Since you’re three hours away, I would recommend picking up the hive at night(7:00pm) so I can close up the hive when you arrive. This way, all the foragers are already back inside the hive. If you’d rather just have the equipment, I can transfer the bees to some empty boxes, let me know ahead of time if you want the bees or not.
The queen is a daughter from a purchased carniolan, VSH bred queen I purchased last year. Very good producer and strong hive this year(6 supers full of honey pulled this year off the hive). So, this queen is locally bred with Houston bees and the carniolan VSH.
I’m out of town over the weekend, so I will take photos and post them when I get back on Tuesday.
