Nucleus (Nucs) honey bee boxes are the perfect place to start for new beekeepers or experienced keepers who lost lives over the winter. Our Nucs are a small hive that consist of five 'deep' frames mixed of mostly brood (laid eggs) and drawn out foundation, a young mated queen, and about 10,000-15,000 bees. Purchasing a nuc ensures greater success in hive growth by removing supercedre and pheromone issues you might have with a cheaper bee package. Less queen loss, faster growth, more honey! We advise that you install shortly after purchase. To install, take a nuc and five other 'deep' frames, place all ten frames in a 'deep' box and you're on your way to a robust hive! ‘Deep’ boxes and additional frames may be purchased, depending on supplies, for an additional cost. Available for pick up in the middle-late spring
