4 Frame Nucs are placed in a 5 frame wooden hive and include a current year queen, 4 frames which are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), pollen and a division board feeder.  We have taken the risk out of installing package bees for you in a nuc and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.   When installing package bees there is a risk that the bees will act like a swarm and leave the hive after a few days.  With the presence of open brood the bees will not leave.  All you will need to do is transfer the contents of the nuc to you your Langstroth equipment.  You may also keep your bees in the nuc for several weeks before transfering.

 

Nuc in a Single Hive A 4 frame nuc is placed in a single hive and includes a current year queen, 8 frames, 4 of which are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), pollen and a division board feeder and all the items included below in the Complete Hive Assembled.  We have taken the risk out of installing package bees for you in a nuc and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.   There is no need to transfer a nuc that is in a single hive.  When your bees are ready to expand just add supers on top of the single hive.

 

3 # Packages are shaken from commercial hives and given a 2014 marked Italian Queen.  Due to recent increases in the cost of package bees we have had to increase our price to $140.00.  In most cases we deliver packages directly to you or to a common meeting place.  We can also arrange for you to pick up packages from one of our yards.   Packages are not shipped via UPS or USPS because of problems with losses.  We may be able to make special delivery arrangements depending on our delivery routes.  If you are new to beekeeping we would recommend you purchase a 4 frame nuc or a nuc in a single hive (all listed above).  See the reasons why a beginner should consider a nuc over package bees.

Nucs with queensWe have Italian and Carniolan.  All lines are bred for the hygenic nature.   We have at the request of beekeepers in colder climates a Carniolan cross. These Carniolan breeders are mated in an isolated area and observed for a year prior to use in the breeding program. The Carniolan virgins are mated with Italian drones, resulting in an excellent mix of both Italian and Carniolan traits which many customers prefer.
