Aaargh! Nuc supplier backed out
I ordered a nuc from a local guy back in January. They were coming from MS from, according to him, and good supplier. 2 weeks ago he pushed the date from April 14 to April 25. Called again last night to make sure everything was a go for Wed and he told me the supplier backed out on him. He said he was making nucs from package bees from Dadant. I'm not sure I want to spend $130 on a nuc from package bees that have been in the nuc for 2 weeks. Fortunately for me I ordered another nuc from another place that is still going to deliver this weekend.
I do have a line on a cut-out about 45 mins away that is in a garage and should be easy to do. I might just tell the guy to sod off on his package bee nucs. Not really sure what else to do at this point.
