Excellent starter colony, available as 5 Frames of Bees and 4 frames of Brood in all stages, plus 1 frame of stores, headed by a locally bred 2022 Queen in a returnable plywood travel box. The Nuc was produced by using our own selectively bred queen raised in a 6 frame nuc, and allowed to develop into a complete 12 frame colony to overwinter. The colony is then reduced to a 5 frame Nuc in the Spring, with the surplus bees and brood being used to start a new Nuc. Available late April 2023 onwards, (weather dependent). No deposit required, but early booking advised as limited stock available.
