Nuc of Bees


Availability: Out of stock


A Nuc (Nucleus) is an established hive consisting of approximately 5 frames of Italian Bees. Please note: A Nuc consists of BEES ONLY. Customers need to supply a Deep Langstroth Hive Body with a Top Cover and Bottom Board, 4 additional frames and a frame feeder. If you need to purchase equipment, check out our Basic Starter Hive. Bees cannot be shipped. Pick up is at The Valley Hive ONLY. Nucs will be available around the end of May or possibly the beginning of June. This 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.


If you are looking to purchase bees for the 2018 season, you can still order a nuc HERE. A NUC (Short for nucleus) is a newly established hive, consisting of approximately 5 frames of bees with a laying queen. The nuc contains bees and the 5 frames only. At the time of pick up, bees will be transferred into equipment provided by the customer. Nucs will be available for pick up between the end of May and the beginning of June.

Bees are available for pick up at our Chatsworth location. The Valley Hive sells Italian honeybees of known genetics through a reputable breeder in Northern California. Your satisfaction is very important to us. Although there is no warranty or guarantee on bees, we do whatever we can to assure that our customers are getting the best possible products from us. We are available to answer questions and talk bees at our brick and mortar location 7 days a week! Service is our number one concern.
