    Bought a queen from him last year and she heads one of my strongest at the moment. Good experience

    Ordered 3 queens. Mike called and offered them on time if not a little early. I asked for a later ship date as I was needing medical treatment.

    I stepped off the train, my problem. Cannot get back on. Caught Mike once and he said next tuesday his ship day. Great. Rain next three weeks his area from weather map. Delay OK.

    Now, frankly, cannot catch him on the phone , emails or left messages. He has taken orders and delivered nucs from his web site while not shipping queens.

    I stepped off the train, my fault, but I just need to know a date to plan my hives around. I have repeatedly left a message saying I will work around date. No answer.

    I know of two people who bought nucs from White Oak that were sold as "Small Cell". The comb will be measured when the weather clears...

    I received my 3 queens today. No notice, and not knowing when or if they would come I used my own cells 3 days ago. A little bit undecided what to do with them at the moment but they are here.

    I bought them at the early sale price of 35, current price 29, I want my 1/2 queen. (not really).

    Will see how they perform.

    They are still in business and currently have ads up on my local craigslist.

    Buyer beware. A fellow beekeeper purchased nucs two years ago. No brood and no honey with failing queens.
