If you want to purchase bees, try the following sources. This doesn’t constitute an endorsement by the FLBC, just a resource to help you source bees for your hives.
April 2020 UPDATE! Emma Walters, Cornell Honey Bee Extension Associate has sent us a directory produced by Cornell and Dyce Lab volunteer/FLBC Apiary Manager David Hopkins to help those who are looking to purchase bees identify and locate producers. You can access the directory on Cornell University’s Pollinator Network website here:https://pollinator.cals.
The list below is superseded by the new one from Cornell, and producers likely appear there as well.
