Nuc of Bees


Availability: In stock


Prepare for Spring, and order bees now for April delivery. The exact date is dependent on weather conditions and other factors beyond our control. A Nuc is an ideal starter hive for the "newbee" beekeeper because the mated Queen has already been introduced to the hive and the frames will contain a mixture of eggs, larvae and pollen to help increase the chances of success. This year, Nucs will arrive in a cardboard box and will come with a mated, marked queen. Simply pick up the box at our location in Chatsworth, bring it home and install it into a deep langstroth hive. If you are looking for a complete hive, check out our selection of beekeeping kits.  Please note: bees cannot be shipped. Add your name to our mailing list to receive updates about bees and other news from The Valley Hive.


This year, The Valley Hive will have Nucs available for pick up in April, along with packaged bees. Nucs will arrive in a cardboard nuc box and will contain a mated, marked queen. Pre-order bees now, to insure delivery in April. Nucs and packages will sell out. Bees can be purchased either in a package or as a nuc. A nuc (Short for nucleus) is a newly established hive, consisting of approximately 5 frames of bees with a laying queen. Need equipment?

Customer Reviews

Outstanding product Review by William
Drove down first thing in the morning 2 years ago and got my first NUC. I brought my transport box and gave it to the Bee Master. He went off and picked up the 5 frames of of bees. The bees did well for my desert environment. The next year I was able to do 3 splits off that first NUC. I will say it is a great product and great people to work with. (Posted on 5/1/2018)
