2018 Honeybee Nuc - MAY ORDER

185.00

We got lucky and were able to secure a second order of nucs for this spring. Anyone placing an order for this item will get their bees, weather permitting, the second weekend in May.

UPDATE: If you have ordered a nuc(s) for May, the pick up date is tentatively scheduled for Saturday May 19th, 6:30-8:00 am. Please check your email for often for confirmation or any possible changes.

We recommend that new beekeepers begin their adventure by purchasing a nucleus colony, or a "nuc." A nuc is, in simplest terms, a small, portable working colony. This colony is installed into your hive in your apiary and can continue working immediately. The nuc consists of a laying queen, two to three frames with brood in all stages from eggs to hatching workers, two frames of honey and pollen stores.

5+ frame honeybee nucleus colony, including mated queen.
