We offer quality 4 frame nucs that are available for pickup the beginning of May in MN and approx. the third week of April in TX. Each nuc will have a 2020 proven laying, young queen grafted from proven stock. They are grafted off the MN Hygienic line. Each nuc consists of 4 frames of brood/pollen/honey. A 50% deposit is required to secure your order. No frame exchange.
We do not out source for our nucs. We manage our own hives throughout the year and are the ones who put the nucs together.
We start splitting our hives in mid-March and put these nucs together at that time. We attempt to have a 4 year frame rotation within our broodnests. The benefit for our customers is that the majority of the combs being placed into the 4 frame nucs are 4 years old and newer. (3 frames are drawn comb and 1 will be foundation which is typically a drawn comb full of sealed brood/honey by the time the customer receives the nuc). A ripe queen cell from the MN Hygienic line is placed into the nuc 24-48 hours after splitting. Before the customers receives their nuc/s, we will have confirmed several times that the nuc is queen-right and has a suitable laying pattern.
