I am looking for some as well, but only 4-6.I want to get some nucs that are over wintered here in New England rather than a package.
I have been calling around and most are not available until the second week in May.
 I know that someone on this board buys some from someone in NH.I think in Hudson. I am going to look into those, but I am not sure how early they are available.

The member with this info is Ann or reinbeau you can ask her, she will chime in on here I am sure.
I hope we both have luck.  :)

No, sorry.   Mine are all spoken for.  But I underbook to allow for winter losses, so if it is a good winter (for the bees)  I may have a few extra.  Thought I might be able to help if you where only looking for a couple.

Robo would you also keep me in mind if you have any "extras". 2 would be nice there very few bee's in this area. I work outside a summer long and I would bet it has been 30 years or more since I have seen a swarm. I am getting some queens from Dan Purvis for splits. But I would also like some northern Bee's.
