NUCS The first 300 queens come in on the 20 APRIL second batch of 300 comes 2nd week MAY.
First 200 are for package bees 100 for breeding boxs
We have to strip the over-wintered breeding boxes into 5 frame nucs then add the new imported queens to the part empty breeding boxes and remaining brood and feed.
We have 4 beeks on the job this takes time so keep your cool be prepaired to wait we try our best.

If you ordered your nucleus DEC/JAN/FEB there is a possibility your names on the first batch going out.
"First come first served"
all the best mike

until i was stripped out i used to run 11 hives and ten nucs breeding twenty queens a year and i thought that was hard work, to prep and organize 2800 nucs is well out of my time allowences and funding and as for the joy i know one hive can bring 2800 is a lot of smiles for me, and any way i belive that if you work hard you should be regaurded in high regard
