      Nuc is short for Nucleus, which is basically a starter colony of bees including honeycomb on frames that fit into a Langstroth style deep hive box. Each Nuc comes with a mated/laying Queen and bees with a balanced mix of the essentials; brood, pollen, nectar and honey. They will come contained and closed in a temporary transport box safe for travel in the cabin of your vehicle, but they will need to be transferred into a standard size 8 or 10 frame deep box, such as a full Hive Set soon to prevent swarming.

Options - Italian Bees or Texan Bees

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like additional information. We will send a notice with all of the needed information a week or so in advance of the scheduled pickup date as well as the physical address to be used on a given date. Please make sure we have the correct and most current email address and phone number when ordering.

     The Nuc is our second most popular starter hive option. (The Apiary Starter Kits are the most popular because these kits have boxes, bees and tools.) The Nucs contain all the components of the colony. Starting with a mated and laying queen bee, frames of brood (eggs and larvae in multiple stages) with nurse or "house bees", frames of pollen, nectar, and honey with workers or "field bees".

     We do offer "Beekeeping Basics" group classes. These are held the same day as bee pickup at our Somerset location. Click here Honeybees 101 for more details.

     Also available are complete Hive Kits with Bees including the hive boxes with a deluxe top and bottom, or select one of our Apiary Starter Kits.

     We treat for Varroa* Mites prior to pickup dates.
* Varroa Destructor - (Varroa spp.) is an external parasitic mite that attacks the honey bees and is considered the number one cause of colony collapse.
