    Default 2012 Nucs near Michigan Medium?

    I'm looking for 5-10 nucs near Michigan (I don't mind driving a decent ways), hopefully in time for cherry/peach bloom (mid to end of Aprilish). I have my own boxes. I've been considering trying some hives as all mediums as my wife sometimes helps me out and deeps can be backbusters. If anyone can point me to someone that supplies medium nucs it would be appreciated, otherwise I may just have to stick with traditional deep nucs. If you have something that might fit let me know.

    Thanks for the leads. I sent off a couple of emails hopefully something will work out. I've been meaning to join an association, just haven't gotten around to it yet (insert lame excuse).

    I have a friend down in the Detroit area who wanted medium nucs, and she said that these folks were planning on having medium nucs this spring. Get in touch with them and see if they have what you want. Good luck!

    the 8 frame med nucs will have 4-5 frames of brood, 1-2 frames of honey, 1-2 frames of pollen mix, and will be top to bottom-wall to wall bees. A solid laying queen raised in 2012, Italian/Carnolian. no frame exchange. would appreciate if you could provide your own boxes. if you're not able to, we will figure out something that works for both of us.
    I would like you to check them out before any money changes hands. if you are not 110% satisfied, please do not feel obligated in any way

    Well I checked with the Mrs. and she cleared me for another 5, so put me down for that. I'll get some boxes ready, just give me a heads up when you make it back to Michigan and I'll come check it out.

    Thanks again, looking forward checking out the bees this Spring.
    (contact info should be in the last message I sent you)

    Sent you a PM, realized I don't have any contact info other than beesource. Hopefully you've still got some nucs available after this goofy Spring.
