5 Frame Carniolan Honey Bee Nucs$180.00
Carniolan Honey Bee Nucs
PLEASE NOTE: Honey Bee Nucs are for pick up only, so although you will get a quote during check out regarding free shipping, we will not ship nucs due to the tremendous and unacceptable amount of stress that it adds to the bees - we will not provide our customers with bees that will not perform well! Also, when you place your nucs in your cart, the system will show tax included on order, until you input your shipping address. Once your address has been entered, the tax will reconfigure to $0.00 for the nucs.
Buy strong 5 frame 9-5/8" deep nucs with a young mated, unmarked Carniolan queen. Nucs are for pick up only from our location in East Peru Iowa. They will be available starting in early May. All orders placed will receive an email as soon as we know when the nucs will be ready with additional pick up details. We will work with you on whichever pick up day works for you; if a weekend works better, then we'll have the nuc ready for you on the specified day. The above price already has sales tax added to it, so the price you see is the end price you will get charged!
All nucs will have 5 frames filled with a mixture of nurse bees, worker bees, drones, and a young, mated, unmarked Saskatraz queen bee who is already laying; brood from that same queen in all stages; pollen and feed. Nucs will be in a reusable 5 frame plastic corrugated nuc box. We start the nucs out with brand new equipment, so there is no worry about old frames. We do not require a frame exchange. We cannot allow anyone to transfer the frames from their nuc boxes into their own equipment while they are here. Doing so would cause you to leave behind a portion of your bees with us, it's better if you take them to where you will be keeping them and transfer them there, so they can find their way back in with the queen. Please Note: Please be aware that you will need to place your frames of bees from the nuc into a regular hive body shortly after picking it up from us. These frames will be full of bees and could potentially end up swarming if not given the extra room that a regular hive offers them.

If paying with a check or money order, we will reserve your nuc(s), but we need to receive your full payment within two weeks to guarantee your order. If we don't receive your payment, we will release your reservation to the next customer in line. We will also accept orders over the phone if you prefer, and you can always give us a call or send us an email with any questions that you may have - we are always happy to speak with you!
Advantages of getting a nuc:
- To give your bee hives a head start at building up and gaining strength for the summer honey flow.
- The queen has already been laying eggs for quite some time, and new bees are either hatching or getting ready to hatch.
- They will also already have pollen and food stores available.
