In the spring of 2020, we will be working with
Crooked Hill Beekeeping to provide Nucs.
Following Information From Crooked Hill Beekeeping:
Russian, Carniolan,and Italian 5-Frame Nucs - $180.
Our Russian and Carniolan 5-frame nucs usually arrive between mid-April and early May.
These will be bees from a Missouri producer, so we won't know the delivery date until we see how
spring progresses. The Italian nucs will be from Northern California and usually arrive in mid- April.
All Carniolan and Russian Queens will be marked, our Italian producer does not currently offer this
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. We 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.
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 us 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. Bees are the only item that requires pre-payment. You will not get a refund if you fail to pick up your bees.
For more information about bees contact Tammy at Crooked Hill Beekeeping at (660) 214-013 or click here for website. chbeekeeping.com
