[USER=2461]@beefree[/USER] I like them from mid October onwards. Getting them to build up fast early like Italians do naturally can be a problem when trying to do spring nucs. If that's the case then you need to be a season ahead with making nucs.

I couldn't agree more, I've come to realize ya can't bank on early spring period for meeting customer orders unless ya have a ridiculous amount of hives. As you said producing them in summer/autumn insures some kind of reliability.
