SPRING 2023 (MID APRIL) [We will email you in March to schedule]
Nucleus honeybee colonies are the best way to start new or restock empty bee hives! The Nuc contains 4 STANDARD DEEP frames of bees and a new mated queen in a waxed corrugated 5-frame nuc box. The frames are an active bee hive that contain brood, honey, and pollen. The queens are raised from our own breeder hives, and will be selected daughters from our best Central Coast California colonies.
Nucleus colonies build up fast and make abundant honey when you put them in a suitable site!
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.
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.
