We are happy to add back 9 Frame Nucs this Spring.
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.
The bees in our 9 Frame Nucs are from Michigan Carniolan/Italian bees that live in Newaygo County and over winter in Georgia. We do splits in March and bring our girls back in May. Our 9 Frame Nuc is a full size wooden Longstroth hive box with 9 drawn out frames. There are 5-6 frames of brood + 3-4 frames of honey. These nuc colonies have a 4 week head start over a packaged installation.
If you would like to purchase 20+ nucs, please call for special pricing.
