From our members:
Just wanted to thank you and the NCBA members who assisted with the package pick-up Saturday! Although delayed a bit, my wife Tami and I came home and put the packages in the garage until the next day. The bees seemed very eager to find their new home and I don’t remember seeing so few dead bees in the packages (less than 10 bees each),
Don and Delivery Crew,
You guys handled the kinks is in the trip.
Delivering the bees on the coldest, wettest day in a month went well considering the adjustments you had to make.
Now that my new colony is happily installed in its hive, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you and the package team volunteers for a job extremely well done. I greatly appreciated the emails with details, reminders and special topics throughout the month. Despite the weather hiccup, it seemed like distribution on Saturday went extremely well. I arrived at the start of my time slot and was the only vehicle in line. And despite the poor weather, I noticed surprising few dead bees upon installation.
Kudos to you and the team!
Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the packages. Both queens are alive and they are in their new home.
