That's where my first package came from (installed Apr. 7th), they started strong and lasted through a nasty cold snap with no issues. Queen seems productive, all in all I'm very happy with this year's crop 2 weeks in.
Yeah me too, from what I've heard the quality can vary quite a bit year to year, some years the packages are good, some years you're better off with a nuc, but picked mine up from Rick at nebees a couple weeks ago(he drives them straight up) and haven't had any issues.
