    Default Carni nuc in CT?

    I would love to get a nuc to start a hive of carniolans this spring. I am in Danbury, CT so pickup would have to be relatively close. Would also pay for shipping if anyone out there ships nucs from a little further afield.

    Thanks,
    Hugo

    He is sold out, only produces a handful per year with Carni queens.

    I am a few hours from Danbury but can provide regular Carni's if you would prefer them over the NWC.

    I think if I read correctly the overwintered NUCS are sold out and/ but there are others available later in the season with recently mated queens? 2 different prices.

    You could be right... I thought he wintered some and brought some in from Jester bee.

    Hello Bluegrass,
    Do we know each other? I don't think so, yet you jump right in and comment about my business? Let's get one thing straight. I am a producer, not a middle man. I only sell bees and queens that I produce myself. Yes, I am selling my nucs in Jester nuc boxes, but they are NOT Kevin Jester's bees. His nuc boxes are the best on the market, and that is why I am using them. Where are your NWC nucs coming from? Please refrain from commenting about my business until you actually know me or my bees.

    Hugo, I do still have nucs available for pickup late May/ early June with 2012 queens, grafted from winter-proven NWC breeder stock.

    I am not out to bash or offend anybody... It serves no benefit to me. I guess I was miss-informed and for that I apologize.

    The nucs I make up myself, I purchase the queens in order to eliminate cross breeding with Italian stock. The queens are from Strachan.
