"Great folks"

Yes they are William. I bought 4 queens from them late in my first season, (September). I talked to David on the phone concerning my concerns and he helped guide me through that first Winter with 'thriving' bees in the Spring. Yes great folks...

The world keeps changing.  I used to buy my frames mostly from Walter T. Kelley because they would make them for me with no groove in the top and bottom bar and I would cut a bevel on the top bar.  I bought a thousand of those and haven't run out since...  So many places have either gone broke or been bought out...


Walter T Kelly must have been a popular supply company to buy from. I have heard Tim Durham, "The Walls Bee Man", suggest that he bought from that company, in some of his 'older' videos.

I used to build my own. But when I figured the time it was costing me it was cheaper to purchase them by the pallet. I think the last ones came from dadant. I purchased from Brushy mountain till they went out of business, moved to Mann Lake until the customer service got poor. Ive been pretty happy with Dadant for the few things I still purchase.
