A five frame nucleus colony comes with five frames of drawn comb. Two frames are food/honey frames, and three of the frames will contain various stages of baby bees, eggs, larvae, and capped brood. Each five frame nucleus colony comes with a mated queen. (You can choose to have your queen marked for an additional charge.) You can purchase a transport box, or provide your own to transport your new colony. We will contact you a week ahead letting you know when to pick up your nucleus colony.
Specify your pick up location above. Delivery is weather dependent and is tentatively scheduled for May 6 in Carlisle, and May 13 in Shippensburg. Specify pickup location by checking the appropriate box above.
We are a state inspected apiary and are licensed to sell nucleus hives as well as queens.
