This is a nucleus hive or starter colony. It includes five (2-3 frames brood at least) frames of bees and queen!

Will not include wooden box but a cardboard nuc box with used frames and foundation.

Nucs are used to start new colonies or to replace colonies lost over winter. Order Early as we expect the honeybees will be scarce this year!

Estimated dates for pickup are June 2014 . No refunds for bees canceled within 30 days of pickup.

Starter hints for you!
Bee hives ideally should be in such a condition that the bees are content and “happy.” A good location is where they are in full sun the whole day. Bees in the shade tend to be more aggressive.
The hives should be dry and the bottom boards should slope forward so that rain water can run out the front. Hive stands help elevate the bees off the ground. This makes it easier to keep the hives dry by letting air circulate under the bottom board. Placing the hives 4-6 inches off the ground also makes it less likely that weeds or grass will obstruct the entrance.
