Why buy a package of bees and hope the queen eventually lays, when you can buy a nuc that has a laying queen and capped brood?
We are taking deposits for nucs for the spring of 2017 for pickup ONLY near Henderson Texas AND Watertown MN
Nuc: Four Deep Langstroth style frames of bees and capped brood with a new recently mated, laying VHS Carniolan queen and plastic feeder in a cardboard nuc box. You provide the hive bodies, stand, covers and the skill. All nucs are started with queen cells and will have been laying 3-5 weeks by the time they are available for pickup. None of these bees will have gone to almonds. They are wintering in East Texas in an area that has no agriculture beyond cow pasture.
The cost of each nuc is $140.00 each or buy in groups of 3 or 5 nucs at discounted prices.
3 Nucs $135 each $405.00 total
5 Nucs $130 each $650.00 total
A 50% deposit is required or you can make the full payment via the pull down menu. Please include a cell number in the comments when ordering.
We anticipate nucs will be available for pickup in Texas starting April 22 and in Minnesota around April 26th 2017. We will email you to arrange the exact date and time for pickup in April.
Warranty: We guarantee a new 2017 laying queen in each nuc and will inspect each one before delivery. If you find you still received a queenless or bad nuc you must contact us within ten days to get a free replacement queen. No replacements or adjustments are available after ten days.
