*5 Frame Nucs:
-5 frames consisting of various ages of brood, pollen, honey, and a laying queen
-Medium nucs are naturally drawn, foundationless, natural cell size bees - (CURRENTLY SOLD OUT)
-Deep nucs are generally made of comb built off of commercially available wired foundation sheets
-All nucs will be ready to place in a full size hive once they are ready to be picked up
-1st round of nucs, depending on the weather, should start becoming available in May
-All orders will be filled in the order their deposits are received
-Deposits are $25.00 and non refundable (unless I am unable to fulfill your order in time for buildup for overwintering). Nucs will not be reserved unless deposit has been accepted first.
- Queens will come in one of two forms (if available); in either a mated queen or a queen cell
-Queen cells are $20, and picking them up on time is important as they ideally need to be placed in your hive before hatching
-Mated queens are $35, and are those that have been naturally mated and have already started laying good patterns in a nuc. -Mated queens will need to be placed in a queen cage or some other device to let them slowly be introduced to a new hives bees over a few days period or they will likely be killed
-Availability is limited as most of my queens are for nucs only, but I do occasionally have extras that I wasn't expecting.
