Hi folks,

For those in or around southern and central New England, I'm selling nucleus colonies that have been raised and overwintered in Western Massachusetts. These bees stay put year round. I've been an employee of Michael Palmer's for a good few years and, quite naturally, apply his methods in my own apiaries. I've adopted plenty of Mike's queens, too, so the bees in my apiaries have pretty good genetics.

These nucs are five frame deeps. Expected to be available for pick up in May. $225 if you mail a check. $232 via PayPal.

More information and order forms at pioneervalleyapiaries.com. If you have any questions, you can contact me at [email protected]

Thanks,

Rob Zywno

Are ALL of the bees you have been form up north her? Or have you ever gotten 'southern' bees?
Are you TF and what is your HB / varroa mite counts?
What is on the 5 frames?

I am asking here and not on your email because you only have 1 post, have not given any other post comments/opinions so thought you should answer here.
Yeah I know that sounds crappy to say but flash in the pan posters on any type of forum bother me and I am looking for Nucs for this year. I am also looking at @Michael Palmer nucs in VT

Rob can answer these questions himself, but I've worked with him for the last 5 years and I know he's absolutely straight up and honest. The negative connotation of flash in the pan does not apply to him. And yeah, he knows what good bees look like because he's worked with, and learned, with the best. I would expect a great product.

Just FYI, he can't seem to post on this thread for some reason, I have been PM'ing with him.
My flash in the pan comment obviously does not apply to him once he PMed me.
Do you have Bees from him?

Linda,
Respect you for the step back. Doubling down on a misstep is so in vogue today.

Absolutely, only reason why I have not put up a reply is because I just finished replying to him by PM this morning. And hopefully my lack of Coffee typing was coherent to him.
Hopefully he will make make a 'Hello' thread to chat about his bees and himself to get his name out there :)

There are some answers there that you seek, so yes. Did you look at the website?
A couple things I conclude from your post....
1) Clearly you missed what I wrote in my 1st post here, I will let you go read it.
2) you didn't read all the posts here... which means....
3) you are late to the party
4) you are maybe trying to stir the pot for no reason ?

I pointed out the website in case you didn't visit it.
And no I didn't miss your first post.
Good luck.
