    I live in northeastern Indiana. Does anyone know where I can buy a nuc of Carniolan bees for this spring. I have had Carniolans before and really liked them, but the person I bought them from in Fort Wayne doesn't seem to be around anymore.

    How far are you willing to travel and when do you want them?

    Well, I was hoping for someone within 100 miles, but I have already made arrangements to buy a package of grey caucasians.
    However, I am curious if you know someone near to me.

    I live between Rockford and Freeport and will be willing to do nucs around May 15th.

    Well, I wish I had found you before I sent my check for package bees. However, I may still be interested at a later date if these grey caucasians don't work out.
    Thank you.
