With regard’s to my earlier post about the poor quality of packages coming out of California last year, I wanted to update you that the company, GloryBee was not helpful at all when I contacted them about the problem. Considering that all my other hives did very well with none lost and only the packages from GloryBee struggling and dying out I think its pretty clear where the problem was.
I’ve done business with this company for many years but that didn’t seem to matter when I contacted them, so my suggestion, based upon my recent experience would be to find someone else to purchase your bees from this year. They clearly delivered an inferior product and weren’t interested in hearing what I had to say about last years poor quality packages. I think you will be better off doing business somewhere else. Again, that just my hands on experience but it cost me nearly a thousand dollars to learn this lesson. Plenty of other companies to get your bees from and its only fair that you get a heads up with regards to this issue.
Have a good season all.
