Shame on me???
I would never think of such a thing.
So I guess that is bad huh.
The reason that I want to know is that I lost so many hives here this winter that I wanted to get some nucs. I have not found anything in the area at all. I have had people who know that I have bees show interest in getting some from me, but I don't know how to put a nuc together as I have not seen one.
Then there is this guy who offers to sell me a cardboard nuc with a new queen or with out. Two frames of brood, one honey and then two drawn out frames. I ask how much and he says "I don't know what do you think?" So that is the reason for the question, but I have about 30 deeps full of drawn comb, and two strong hives. I would like to do something to provide bees for others as well as increase mine.
Sooooo... Still working on it.
Thanks for all the heads up.
