Well everything I read said buy your bees from a reputable seller, and after weeks of searching, all of the people that were recommended to me were sold out. So I found a guy on craigs list and bought 2 nucs from him for me, and 2 full hive for my father in law. Well I transfered them to my hives and first thing I noticed was one of the nucs had 1 med. frame and 4 deeps, and the main thing I saw was there wasnt very many bees. The other one was better with much more bees. I got a very knowledgable beekeeper to come check them out for me and he fully agreed, that the one was not even considered a nuc and should not of been sold. He swapped out a good frame of brood and put in the weak hive for me, so maybe it will boost it some. Anyways lesson learned, just be patient.
