*Please read "terms & conditions" prior to placing your order. Nucs cannot be shipped.

** Supplies are limited!

A great way to start a new healthy hive is with a starter nuc. Nucleus hives, or “nucs,” are small 5 frame colonies made from existing A & Bee Provisions colonies in the Spring. Our nucs will have a minimum of 3 frames with brood in all stages of development, from egg to hatching bees, and 2 more frames with honey and pollen (bee food) to sustain the colony while it grows. Nucs take the guesswork out of starting a hive.

  • Nucs build up more quickly than package bees because there is hatching brood
  • Each nuc will consist of 5 frames including: Honey, Pollen, Brood, Italian Queen Bee
  • Nucs will be packaged in a waxed cardboard box. Commercial grade assembled deep nuc boxes made of quality pine are available for an additional $30. 
  • Expert guidance via online access to our beekeepers

5) Cancellations: Nuc orders cancelled before April 1st will be refunded the purchase price minus a $40 fee per package or nuc. If cancelling after April 1st, then no refund will be made.

6) Returns & Refunds: There are no returns or refunds once the customer accepts the bee nuc. The customer also understands and acknowledges that nucs are perishable.

It is the responsibility and duty of the customer to ensure that nucs are kept cool and out of direct sun until they are installed in hives.
