Hello Bee keepers,
April 8th 2018
This notice is for the Nuc people only. The weather has not been warm in California to get the bees to the point we need them for Great Nucs. They will be delayed until the 5th of May. That’s a Saturday and then the second load will be the following Saturday the 12th of May for Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana deliveries will be made. We cannot get all the Nucs in one load because the load will be too heavy for the trailer.
Thanks for your understanding. I know how excited everyone gets to get their bees. This is kind of the way things have been going the past few years. Cool weather when we are trying to breed queens and shake bees for packages.
From some of the emails I have gotten from some folks this will work out great because they decided to take vacations when the bees.
I also know this will generate a ton of return Emails. Please go to the web site northwestbeesupply.com and look before e-mailing me.
