    My son picked up a wild swarm of bees in our only hive. Now he has another phone call from someone else in Michigan that has a swarm and wants it picked up. He'd like to go get it, but needs another hive to put it in.

    Where can I buy another hive QUICKLY in Ohio? NW, Ohio, to be exact, but will drive.

    And maybe I didn't word that right... I don't think he needs the whole hive, just the frames that hang in the boxes. 10 frames, I guess????

    Can you tell that I don't pay any attention to what he is doing???? :)

    Try "beekeepers" in the yelow pages. You might get lucky, there MIGHT be a supply house near you.
