    Default Need to get a package / nuc - Western NY

    Hi,

    I just had to cancel a package pickup at Betterbee in eastern NY, due to scheduling conflicts (they rescheduled twice, due to Georgia's cold weather). So, I have no bees for this spring.

    Is anyone out there willing to sell me a nuc / package in the new few weeks? I'm in Greece, NY, but I'm willing to drive a few hours to pick it up (Betterbee is 4 hours + away from me)

    I'm getting back into beekeeping after 7 years out of it. I have a hive w/ pierco frames, beesuit, and tools.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    All the folks I know are sold out of NUCs for the year. Contact me if you want to NUC for next year. I can add you to my 2014 buyers list for a reserved spot.

    Have you tried the; http://ontariocountybeekeepers.org/

    Deo Hurlburt on Middle road in Henrietta probly sell you a swarm or a nuc.

    Lots of losses this year, most everyone I know is trying to rebuild #'s.

    Your probably better off waiting for northern nucs anyhow.

    I have bought nucs from Michael Johnston (Johnston honeybee farm, Eaton, NY) always happy.

    I know NYBLUES on here sells top quality NUCs but I believe he is sold out for the year.
