    It appears as though my Warre made it through the winter for the first time in 3 tries. We had weather in the upper 60's the last 2 days, and there was slow activity in and out of the hive. I put a...

    Looks like Tegart Nucs is set up to sell 750 at a time! What would you suggest to us little guys that buy 2 at a time?
