I ordered some bees from Full Bloom Apiary and had a great expereance. Shipped on time and was able to add 2 extra queens to my order on short notice. The NWC queens arrived in good shape even all the attendants were doing well also.
Also had a good experience with my order. Last month I ordered three Carni queens to try and save some of the hives dwindling to nothing due to the poor packages I received this year. They arrived promptly and in fine shape. The queens were accepted readily and upon checking today, I find they are laying up a storm.
Update on my 4 nucs. Three are boomers with great queens. Two are supered with 5 frame nuc bodies already. the other went queenless and I combined it with another new nuc [queen cell]. The queenless situation was probably ppbk and not the fault of the queen. I'm going to order some more queens from him next week.
