Premium, high quality nucleus (nucs) beehives. Full of bees, brood and honey with laying queen. Queens are marked for identification.
These are NOT California bees or bees with California queen added. Bees and queens are Italian/Carniolan cross, locally adapted survivor stock derived from USDA VSH breeding program, Utah/Idaho bred and raised.
Nucs delivered in durable, reusable and recycle-able plastic nuc box.
Nucleus hives are cost effective--they will provide a 4 week+ head start compared to package bees and increase prospects for surplus honey the first year.
Typically available for pickup in Preston beginning late April/early May . Limited quantity, book early to assure availability. 1 to 25 nucs @ $155/each, 26 or more @ $145/each. Orders of 11 or more require 20% deposit to book. Alder Apiaries show contact info
