Nucs - Nucleus Hive - Spring 2023
Get your nuc (nucleus) hive with an accepted, laying queen! These nucs contain five frames. At least 4 frames will be populated with worker bees, an established queen, and an active broodnest. They will be ready for pick up in Mount Vernon or Lynnville, Iowa around May 1-15. This date can fluctuate slightly depending on the weather. The queens this year will either be Italian/Carniolan hybrids, Carniolan, or Italians. Queen type choices are not offered for nucs due to very limited queen supplies when nucs are started.
