Nucs will have 5 frames of bees with brood, pollen, honey, and a marked laying Queen. The bees are of Carniolan stock. The Carniolan is a gentle bee that broods up early and is a great honey producer. At home, you will need your own deep hive body, bottom board, at least 3 empty frames w/ internal feeder or 5 frames with a Boardman feeder, a lid, a hive tool, a bee veil or jacket, beekeeping gloves, and a smoker.
All you need to bring when you pick up your bees is a veil or jacket and a pair of gloves.
The specific date and time for pick-up will be emailed to you as we get closer to May 2023.
So what is a nuc?
Nucs, or nucleus colonies, are small honey bee colonies created by dividing larger colonies in the spring and giving each of the new smaller colonies its own new queen. The term refers both to the smaller size box and the colony of honeybees within it. The name is derived from the fact that a nuc hive is centered on a queen, the nucleus of the honey bee colony.
