*Nucs come in an wood 4 frame box ($15 deposit included and refunded if returned in good condition)
*Note for when you pick up your bees:
- transport is the responsibility of the new happy owner of the bees
- bring your protective clothing
- it's best to pick them up when it is still cool (morning), or 15 minutes before dark. (night transport is the best)
- the optimal transport is the back of a pickup, although bees can be transported by car at your own risk
- It is up to you as the new owner of the bees to decide how best to move your bees.
- for car transport you may wish to bring a sheet or netting to cover the bees
- we are not responsible for bees that get over heated once they leave our care
- all bees sold are in need of larger living quarters right away. Nucs will need to be installed into waiting 10 frame equipment.
- many recommend feeding nucs especially if they are being installed on un-drawn (new) foundation (Check out Fonda Bee in 1kg or 2.5kg on this site or get your sugar syrup ready!).
**We do not ship bees. Pick up in Wellesley only.
