Honey Bees aka NUCS. (short for nucleus colony)
We are taking a WAITING LIST in case we have extras after our confirmed orders are filled.
We would rather ‘under sell’ than ‘over sell’
**Please note that we will be filtering NUC requests – those who have taken classes and have done some research and gained knowledge will be given priority.
WHAT IS A NUC? A NUC is 4 frames of bees. They are an established colony of bees, with brood, food, eggs, and a laying queen.
All our bees are inspected by the Provincial Bee Inspector. (never buy bees without seeing an inspection certificate)
Pick up will possibly be late April through June 21st. Generally mid May to mid June is when most NUCS roll out
***a returnable deposit will be also required for the transport box that they come in. You are welcome to keep that box or return it for a refund.
Please note that all live bee purchases are considered livestock and carry a “no refund, no cancellation” policy.
Our queens are guaranteed and will be considered for replacement after assessing the situation.
