    Hi Jonathan, do you still have any queens left, and what time frame are we looking at? I’m in Pembrokeshire South Wales.
    Thanks very much

      I keep grafting until September. At the moment probably about 2 weeks until I can post. I always have a backlog to clear of prepaid orders.

        Just paid for 2 last night. If there is any chance of maybe at least 1 a bit earlier as I’ve got a queen less colony and the other is just laying drones. They are both swarms I got earlier this year and are not that big yet so want to get them going asap. I may end up combining them, any thoughts or advice great fully received. Thanks
