5 Frame Nucs


Russian, Carniolan, Italian, and Italian/Carniolan Cross 5-Frame Nucs - $190 Plus 

$10 Fee to Pick Up @ Sunny Day Beekeeping. ($10 Fee Wavied with Equpiment



Our Russian  5-frame nucs usually arrive between mid-April and early May.  These will be from a Missouri producer, so we won't know the delivery date until we see how spring progresses.  The Russian Nuc Queens will be marked.

The Italian and Carniolan Nucs will be from Northern California and usually arrive in mid-April.  


The Italian/Carniolan Cross Nucs will be from south Missouri and should arrive in early May. 


Each nuc is inspected by the producers prior to shipping and will be inspected by us before you pick it up to ensure it meets our quality standards. 

All our bees will be from north of the 36th parallel, nothing from the southern states (southern bees are not well acclimated to our winters and have more risk of hive beetles and Africanization). 


To place an order, please give Crooked Hill Beekeeping a call at (660)214-0132. If you have ordered from us before and your contact information has not changed, you may place your order by email.

Orders are not confirmed until full payment is received. 

Please text or email me or (816) 654-5287 if you would like a richmond pick up. I will  schedule nuc pickups in the early morning or late evening so the nucs can be closed up when the foragers are all back at the hive, and the nucs can travel to their new home in the coolest part of the day.
