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 nucs have a laying hybrid queen that is sensitized to Colorado.

Nucs have some advantages over packages. With our tumultuous spring weather, they are substantially more robust than packages. The queen is already accepted and laying. They contain more bees, brood, and some established food supplies in drawn combs. Nucs will also build up more readily into strong colonies due to their initial advanced maturity and size.

Nucs will be queened with hybrid 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

5 Frame Nucs, $178.00 ea.

We are not producing bee packages this year to to the volatile and continued problems in the commercial bee world. We don't have enough bees to safely produce bee packages. However, we still have Nucs available.
