    Shipping would kill you. Got 2 packages from CA last year, almost as much to ship as to buy

    I have trouble finding anyone that will ship packages so buy from local Beeks The trouble is in part of the country we live in there are not a lot of people to buy from and if you do find s0omeone the shipping is a armand leg

    I installed 100 oliveraz packages last spring(in WI) to make up for the bad loss I had in the almonds. I was very satisfied with the queens(Italian) and the packages overall.

    I made 60 nucs in September with Oliveraz queens and as of yesterday none of them have failed. They're doing great. Can't wait to see what they do in spring .

    Got an NWC package last spring, & combined it with a weak hive. They built up so fast I couldn't believe it.
