    I know I know this is a very old thread, but it asks exactly what I am looking for.

    Has anyone since this was posted ( 2005 ) bought from them up here in Massachusetts ?

    How did you like their Bees, did they last the Winter, Mites any other issues or NON-issues ?

    I am not far from them and at $170 a Nuc, I am wondering how they really are.

    I have not purchased nucs from Merrimack, however i have known them a long time, they seem to have a decent product at a decent price. And the fact that they sell tons of nucs every year for as long as i can remember means they must be doing something right.

    My brother bought nucs from them in the past. They overwintered very well, multiple seasons. I dont know of any serious mite problems. Myself, my brother, and my nephew , a new bee , have nucs coming in April from them. At this time they may be sold out.
