The transaction went smoothly. The only minus was that the pick-up date was not yet identified.
Have bought bees from you for several years. The price keeps going up, but the bees arrive in good condition and have had no problems. Hives are still going strong without the use of chemicals. But not sure how they will do with this unusually cold winter
These bees have done very well. They have built 13 combs in my TBH in 30 days. They are exploding in population.....so much capped brood!!!! If anyone needs package bees I would highly recommend the ones BeeThinking sells.
Bees are back at the ranch and in there new homes. They look very healthy and the young ladies are ready to go to work.
Service picking up the bees was excellent. We expected you to be open at 10AM, your usual hours, but you were open when we arrived at 9:30AM. Coming all the way from Bend we really appreciated that. We picked up 25 packages. (likely your largest order???) So far I've heard from everyone in the class but a couple of folks and that means that so far, 20 of the 25 packages had live queens in them. Obviously that's very important. I also appreciate the discount given to our class and I know this has already led to purchases of equipment from you folks by members of my class. I expect to be teaching for the foreseeable future and as long as the bees continue to be of high quality (as well as the equipment) I will have no problem recommending "beethinking" to members of future classes. Thanks again. Ron Lane
