I will be selling 5 frame, 4 frame, 3 frame, and topbar nucs, available End of May/Early June for the prices seen below.
are either 3, 4, or 5 deep frames of, brood, pollen, honey, and bees. They come in a
cardboard nuc box so no box or frame exchange is needed. We also offer
free beekeeping classes with ever nuc ordered. We will also be offering the option of ordering
a 6 frame top-bar beehive for 185.00 as well, available for pick up the
third/fourth week of may and later. They will come with 6 drawn out
frames, 3lbs+ of bees, an already accepted and laying queen, pollen,
honey, and brood. And a travel box that holds an average of 10-15 frames. The frames we build will be 18'x1 3/8' x 3/4'. These will fit smaller topbar hives but will not fit into larger ones.
bees are a northern raised by me in New York and survive winters,
unlike southern package bees that die no matter what you do. The 3, 4, or 5 frame
nuc will also build up 50% faster than packages will and are far
healthier for it.
The queens you get will be a
mixed race of Italian, German, Russian, Carniolan and Australian. I open
mate my queens to avoid monoculture and inbreeding. I also set up my
mating yards with hygenic tested hives so mites can be controlled
naturally and without chemicals. I never use chemicals on my bees and
never plan to, so you'll be getting bees that are strong and well worth
