4 Frame Nucleus Colony - 2019 (Overwintered & Spring)

One of our main objectives is to provide premium, locally produced nucleus colonies (nuc). To do that we also rear our own queens in central Alberta. We take great pride and care in making sure our queens and nucs are top quality. 

Our nucleus colonies are made up of 4 deep frames of bees, brood, honey and pollen. A young, laying and mated queen will be in each nuc. You will receive the nuc in a cardboard transport box that is only used for temporary accommodations. We recommend transferring the nuc to a full Langstroth hive as soon as possible. The nuc will build up quickly on a nectar flow or by being fed.

Nucleus colonies are for Pick Up Only.

Overwintered nucs are available for pick up starting early April. Spring nucs are available for pick up starting at end of May. These times may vary as each season is unpredictable.   

Pre-ordering- If you would like to order during the off season, please send us an email.

If for unforseen reasons we cannot meet your order we will contact you as soon as possible.
