SIGN UP FOR OUR WAITLIST
 (Click HERE To Be Placed on Waitlist)

5 frame Nuc will consist of 3 frames of all stages of brood and fourth and fifth frame with honey, pollen, and bees. No introduction of a queen since she is already laying eggs and has capped brood.These nucs have more bees and potential than a package (up to 6 weeks ahead) Each nuc is evaluated individually

The combs you will be getting have never been exposed to antibiotics. Mite treatments only when necessary

-Queens will be grafted from our stock (mostly old-world WSU and Glenn background genetics).We select for honey production, gentleness, disease resistance, and low swarm tendency.

-Italian and Carniolan available.

-Bees survive well in our dry summers and cold winters.

-Queens are never banked but are born into the nuc and evaluated after mating. Queens will be allowed to lay 3 weeks or better and all of her brood will be evaluated. She will need to have 3+ frames of excellent brood pattern to pass our standard.

– Nucs are less likely to supersede their queen compared to a 3lb package. She is already a proven functioning part of the new hive.

-Nucs build up bee populations faster increasing your chances of a bigger honey crop!

-All customers are welcome to check nucs before purchase.

– Nucs come in a non-returnable box.

-Please note these are DEEP (9.5/8) nucs but medium (6.5/8) are also available.
