Our overwintered nucs are built up during the summer on new frames with fresh foundation and a nice young Queen. We nurture them as they build up and are regularly checked for signs of disease or problems to ensure the colony is healthy and the Queen is of good stock. They are also checked regularly by the bee inspectors from the National Bee Unit and we are fully DASH disease accredited. Only then, once we are 100% happy with them, do we prepare them for collection by our customers. They come in our Polystyrene Nuc hive which is safe and secure for travelling and is yours to keep afterwards too!
Please Note, All our bees are collection only, we do not post bees. Please select 'pickup from store' as you go through checkout. We advise you order bees separately from any other equipment orders.
