Great experience with Mr. Carpenter. He called me the week he was going to ship just to see if I was ready. I'm glad he did. We were about to go from the mid 70's to the 20's that week. So he shipped them the next week when it warmed back up again. Didn't seem to bother him. I had them in three days. I have to say, these have been some really good queens so far. I have never gotten more than two supers per hive which is normal for my area. The colonies under the 5 new queens are already in the third super and probably have a month to go. Also very well mannered colonies. Needless to say, I am impressed.

Great to know. I want to split my production hives after the flow with Carpenter queens.

NCbeek, I was wondering what your opinion is of these Carpenter Queens 4 months later. I am a few counties north of you and I am considering trying to get a few of their Queens this spring.

It's been a year since I purchased these queens. All but one made it through the cold it seems and are building up nicely. I waited around till I was too late to get any this year or I certainly would.
