    Default need packages and nucs in Michigan

    I know I should have looked into this sooner, but that's the way it is, I need to know if anyone can PLEASE direct me (without me doing alot of phone calling) to a source of quality package bees and or medium depth nucs that I can pick up (within reasonable driving distance) preferably before May 1. I need about 3 packages and a couple medium nucs, genetics don't make much difference at this point as long as I can get the bees. Maybe someone is hauling a load of packages north this spring and will have extras. Would like to get a couple medium nucs also like I said earlier, but will take packages for those if I can't get the nucs. I live in southeastern Michigan, just south of Detroit, I would be willing to drive a couple hundred miles for the bees if I need to, its either that or maybe not get bees, I would rather have the bees, lost alot of my hives this winter. Really would appreciate someone to help me out here, I know its getting late. Thanks in advance, John

    One of Wilbanks Michigan dealers is Blanche Barber (248)634-7017. Might check to see if she has any extras. Good luck.
