A nucleus colony (“nuc” for short) is 5 drawn-out frames in a temporary box, complete with honey and brood. They come with a queen and approximately 10,000 worker bees. A deep nuc will fit in deep Langstroth hive boxes. Kutik Honey is supplying our nucs (2019). Their apiary spends summers in New York and winters in South Carolina.
We start taking in orders in December, and typically expect them to come in throughout the month of April.

These nucs will be queened with various queen stocks. We recommend deep nucs for new bee keepers that plan to use deep hive equipment. Consider a Package if you want to use all medium hive equipment.
