A nucleus hive is a young colony of bees from an existing hive of productive, gentle, and generally made of the "survivor" bees. The name "Nuc" is derived from the fact that a nuc hive is centered around the queen, or the nucleus of the honey bee colony.
Each nuc hive of ours will contain 5 deep Langstroth frames(4 frames of brood and 1 honey frame), workers bees and 1 laying queen* all encased in a temporary but sturdy Jester’s EZ nuc box for transport. This is a small working colony ready to grow, develop rapidly, and easily transfer into a standard deep Langstroth hive.
You are allowed to inspect each nuc at pick-up and please bring your own protective gear as many bees will be flying around.
*Queens are not marked
