Our nucs are four frames of our beautiful bees. There is one frame of honey/pollen and two to three frames of bees with larva in all stages of production and a laying queen.  Our queens are raised from our best hardy stock with genetics hardened to the Zone 3 Canadian climate. The bees come in a standard nuc cardboard box sealed and ready for transport.

The $50 non-refundable pre-payment secures your nuc for the season.

Please note: These are live bees you will be transporting, be prepared to place them in a cool, well ventilated area during transport. Do not place in back of pick-up trucks due to high volume of air flow and uncertain weather conditions unless you are prepared to cover and secure your nuc. Live bees are to be installed as soon as you can and once left our farm are in your care. We do not ship nucleus colonies. Nucs are to be picked-up at our bee farm in Wilno, Ontario.
