LIVE NUCLEUS BEE COLONY
Available ONLY for evening Pick-Up in Nipomo / San Luis Obispo, CA. NUCS WILL NOT BE SHIPPED.
Currently we are accepting orders for:
SPRING 2022 (APRIL - MAY, 2022. Date to pick them up will be arranged after your order. Typically the earliest ones will be ready during the 3rd week in April.)
Nucleus honeybee colonies are the best way to start new or restock empty bee hives! The 4-Frame nuc contains 4 STANDARD DEEP frames of bees and a new mated queen in a waxed corrugated 5-frame nuc box with an internal feeder. The frames are an active bee hive that contain brood, honey, and pollen. The queens are raised by our queen production specialist from our own breeder hives, and will be selected daughters from our best colonies. Mother stocks for the queens are Russian, Caucasian, and Italian.
It is important that you have more than one bee colony, since frames from one can be used to restore or correct problems with other hives. We strongly recommend that you order at least two nucs unless you have other hives already.
1 nuc @ $170 each
2 -10 nucs @ $160 each
First come first served! Orders will be completed in the order that paid orders are received. We get extremely busy during the spring!
Place your order here, then we will contact you to arrange an evening for you to pick up your bees.
