Nucs (Nucleus Hives)
Nucs, or Nucleus Hives, are small honey bee colonies created from larger colonies.
The term refers both to the smaller size box and the colony of honeybees within it. The name is derived from the fact that a nuc hive is a complete colony centered around a queen – the nucleus of the honey bee colony.
(We are able to offer limited quantities of Nucs for 2018 priced at a reasonable $165)
A Note from Our Supplier
“…We have been breeding cold weather queens from Washington, Maine, Michigan, and the Mountain states…for high brood production, gentle traits, possible hygienic nature, and high honey production. Our Georgia bees are only bred in the south, and represent the best of what our country has to offer to the hobbyist and the commercial beekeeper….”
