Summer Nucs with locally raised queens for sale.

 It is highly recommended that every beekeeper have one nuc for every two colonies. When built up and be ready to overwinter, these nucs can be used next spring to replace losses or increase your colony number (see Sustainable beekeeping using late season nucs on:  http://www.sandhillbees.com/education).

 I have five frame medium nucs with queens raised in Blue Bell from a variety of queen mothers (local survivor queens or a VSH breeder queen ).  The survivor queen mothers have all lived since 2017 or 2018 here in my apiaries and are productive and gentle. The VSH Carniolan queen mother is a 2020 breeder queen from VP Queens.  The nuc will contain three frames of your queen’s brood, as well as frames of nectar and pollen. Some nucs are ready now and others will become available in the coming weeks. $175, including waxed cardboard box.

This season, I have several kinds of nucs available, each consisting of five medium depth frames of adult bees, including three frames of brood of varied ages (all of which are offspring of your queen), as well as frames of pollen and honey. Types of nucs that will be available include nucs with 2020 VSH Carni hybrid queens (raised by Johnny Thompson of Broke-T Honey from VSH breeder queens from VP Queens), nucs with Saskatraz hybrid queens, and nucs containing 2020 queens raised from my local survivor stock. These different types of nucs will be available at diverse times, from now until early summer.   For more information, go to my web site: http://vincemasterbeekeeper.com

I am PA licensed (C2019-89) to sell Queens and Nucleus colonies. As part of this program, my queen rearing apiaries are inspected by the PA Department of Agriculture twice a year, typically at the beginning and end of the active beekeeping season. I use no antibiotics or synthetic chemicals in my beekeeping operations.
