NUC failing

After the excitement of watching the new bees yesterday, I awoke around 2 o'clock thinking that I hadn't been seeing anything happening at the new nuc.  Decided to check it out and found no queen, no brood cells, empty frames and very few bees.  May still have time to add a new queen and salvage it.  I guess that White Oak Apiaries has more problems than I thought.  Along with his untidiness and bad bookkeeping, he may be untrustworthy also.  We'll see, as I wrote him an E-mail telling him of the problem and how was he going to correct it.  I'm not the only one having this type of problem of having queen-less nucs.  Will have to wait and see what he says.  Later
