    Default Shamrock "S"

    Anyone have any dealing with them? Use their queens or packages?

    For those not familiar with the trade name. It is Shad Sullivan a very large beek in California. I ordered a couple of packages with VSH/SMR queens from him this week. Curious if others have used him in the past?

    Shamrock "S" is a quality business. Their customer service, aka Jerry, is very easy to deal with!

    Went up and checked out Shad's operation very up to date outfit, looking to get early queens from him, nice friendly guy and he is a decent sized beek he made the comment that he has 15,000 hives i'm curious to see how his queens do.

    I think I saw somewhere they sell Australian package bees. But, ad in Jan ABJ page 34 says "All queen and drone stock from Glenn Apiaries-Calif."
    "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink"...well that horse ain't got nothing on a bee.

    he get's his breeder queens from glenn and selects drone mothers from his hives and places the mateing nuc's in isolated locations, the packaged bee's come from browns in austraila.

    Probably busy with almonds. Shad's wife usually mans the phone. You might try emailing him. He has a blackberry and usually responds. His email is Shad Sullivan bees4you@aol.com

    Got my 2 packages. Great service, nice phone call to tell me they were on the way. Both arrived healthy and appear strong. Very gentle bees so far. Will use them again in the future.

    Re: Shamrock "S"

    The packages I got in April developed quite well... queens were vigorous and laid well. Mite counts were zero on both hives even though they were in a yard with Italians which needed treatment. All-in-all a good buy, especially for you west coast beeks. Highly recommended.
