5 Frame Nuc


Nucs are popular in colder climates because they build much faster with fully established, self-supporting small hives consisting of 5 or 9 frames. One of the major benefits of nucs over packaged bees is that nucs already contain a laying queen with new bees that are either hatching or getting ready to hatch. They also have pollen and food stores established.

Our 5 Frame Nucs are a mixed stock of Carniolan and Italian. They have a calm, gentle temperament and are most likely to forage on colder, wet days. These are Northern Wisconsin bees that over winter in California. The frame size is a standard deep that fits into your existing Longstroth hive body. All five frames have been completely drawn out with at least 3 frames that are more than half full of brood. These nuc colonies have a 4 weak head start over a packaged installation.
