Condition: New
More Information
Our 6 frame nucs come on self spacing frames with 4 to 5 frames of brood at all stages, frames of food stores and a marked Queen, green for 2019.  Most of our nucs are headed with Carniolan or buckfast queens however we may also offer nucs headed with Ligustica and Mellifera Mellifera queens. See our queen pages for information regarding the specific races. Please note that if you do order a specific race we cannot guarantee to supply that race although we will do our best. All our bees are gentle and are suitable for beginners and the experienced beekeeper. 

All our nucs comply with the guidelines set out by the NBU (National Bee Unit) and Defra.  We are DASH Accredited, The Disease Accreditation Scheme for Honeybees.

We are often asked by customers if they can inspect their nuc on the day of collection. This is not possible as we close the bees up the evening before collection to ensure you get all the flying bees. If you were to open the nuc and inspect it on the day of collection you would lose too many bees which would compromise the nuc.  We do guarantee all our nucs for a short period of time and offer you full telephone support.  We will always do our best to offer advice and help you to sort out problems you may have.

Spring Nucs will be ready will be towards middle / end May weather depending.  

We do ask you to be patient when waiting for your bees as, until the season starts, we cannot give an idea on time scales.  As soon as your nucleus of bees is ready I will get in touch to let you know, your nuc will be ready to be transferred into a full size hive when it leaves us.  To give you an idea of how the years differ last year, 2015 saw our spring nucs go out in middel May, 2014 our spring nucs went out in early June, 2013 they were not ready until the end of July and in 2012 they were ready mid June.

Our nucs on 14x12 frames are collection only and are sold in Poly nuc hives.  The poly nuc hive has a built in feeder and an open mesh floor. It is easy to transport the bees in the poly box and it is a handy piece of kit to keep in your bee shed. It is made from high density polystyrene which is very strong and has great insulation properties, keeping the bees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

We are taking orders now, you can place an order on-line with a deposit of £40 or you can email your order to me with your full details and I will email the invoice for the deposit. The balance will be due for payment just prior to collection.

Many thanks
Becky & Rob

We request that all buyers register their new colonies with Beebase the National Bee Unit website. It is designed for beekeepers and also supports Defra, WAG and Scotland's Bee Health Programmes along with the Healthy Bees Plan, all of which help to protect and sustain our valuable national bee stocks. There are no costs involved with registering with Beebase, instead it gives you, the beekeeper, the security to know that should a bee health problem arise in your area, your local bee inspector will notify you about it, and if necessary come and inspect your colonies, free of charge.  By buying your bees from us you are giving us permission to pass your details on the NBU if they ask for them. If you don't give us permission to pass you details onto them in the event they request them then please let us know at the time of ordering.

Please note that all deposits are non-refundable unless we cannot supply your order however if you do have to cancel we will issue you with a gift voucher to spend with us so you don't loose your money.
