Welcome, Moon Lit.
Yes the forum is good, I learn something new almost every time I log on.
Are you ordering from Country Fields? Are they sold out already? If you want more nucs you could try the Bee Store in Maugerville, they bring them in from another supplier. I have an idea nucs are going to be thin on the ground and expensive this year. On the other hand, any colonies that make it through this winter are definitely 'survivors'. Best of luck -spring will come eventually...
