How about Greensboro or Winston. I might find you some there.

Rick Tyndal in Albemarle had some nucs last week. I dont have his number but he can call information. It would be about a hour and half drive.

Iddee trying to find something as close as possible his car is broke down and when i go i know I'm gonna end up hauling them for him.  He might be paying for the gas but I'd like to keep the time on the road to a minimum.   :-D

I know there is a guy on Craigslist selling bees and he is located in Albemarle. I do not know if it is the Rick Tyndal guy or not! Also, check the NC Ag Review Classifieds. They are always selling bees in there!

Done went down that way he's wishy washy about it now.  Man alive i've never seen someone that can't make up his mind to do it or not.  Guy has already went and bought equipment is the sad thing about it.  Who knows i might be able to get some free stuff by the time this is all said and done lol.

He has the equipment and don't know if he wants bees?   Save him.   Take his equipment.   He don't need the stress from it.   You will be doing him a favor.
