Nucleus colonies of bees come on Deep Frames in a ventilated ProNuc
transport tote with a click lock lid.
Prices are per Nuc of bees - you keep the box - no deposit or frame
or box exchange involved.
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.

full size hive box.) 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" and a few
