Bee Packages

This Spring we will have both 3lb queened packages of bees and 5 framed Nucs. Both the packages and nucs will be queened with our hybrid VSH (varroa sensitive hygiene) Carniolan/Italian queens that are highly sensitized to Colorado. We have been selecting and breeding queens who exhibit:

  • Good Honey Production
  • Hygienic Behavior
  • Successful over wintering
  • Gentle Dispositions

Bee Packages, $11000 ea.


5 Frame Nucs

Our nucs are five wooden plasticell frames that fit deep supers! They consist of capped and uncapped brood, pollen and honey. All the nucs have a laying queen who is a hybrid VSH (varroa sensitive hygiene) Carniolan/Italian queen that is sensitized to Colorado.

If you are uncertain as to whether you need a nuc or a package, please give a call. (Tim 303-514-9257) There are a finite number of packages and nucs available. Please place your order as soon as possible to reserve bees.

5 Frame Nucs, $16900 ea.

Do you wish your bees would just Beehave? Do they wish the same of you? I offer mentoring and support for you, with your bees, at your beeyard. I have over 30 years experience with bees, and can help you with Langstroth, top bar and observation hives, seasonal management, hive inspection, queen skills, diseases and mites, and bee biology. I'm available anytime except when delivering packages and nucs with Tim Brod.
