We will putting up our ORDER FORM in December for May/June delivery/pick up of NUCS
*If you have one year or more of beekeeping experience you may want to order a PACKAGE instead of a NUC. Packages come out in March. We will be happy to discuss the differences with you to see if this is the best fit for you.
Honey Bees. aka NUCS. (short for nucleus colony)
They come on 4 frames with a full colony of established 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 but it depends on the weather and most likely May for most orders.
***a returnable deposit will be also required for the container that they come in and which would we would like back.
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.
