New for the 2018 season our nucs will come in a Jester box! We are very excited to be able to offer this as cardboard boxes are not very durable and cannot be reused. The Jester box is made of corrugated plastic and is much more user and bee friendly. It can be reused and makes a great back-up box or swarm trap.
There are 2 options available this year: 2 Frame Nuc or 5 Frame Nuc
2 Frame Nuc cost is $135 this comes in the Jester Box, with 2 frames of bees and brood with their mated and laying queen and 3 additional frames with foundation.
5 Frame Nuc cost $210 this also comes in a Jester Box; with 4 frames of bees and brood, started on the 5th, their mated and laying queen. (A typical 5 frame nuc usually consists of only 3 frames; we make sure that our 5 Frame Nucs are heavy.)
In addition to the bees we are also offering frames and wooden ware. Frames are heavy duty commercial grade deep frames with top and bottom groves. These are all glued and stapled for extra durability. We have deep and medium frames for $1 a piece. For orders over 500 please call 231-245-3039
