2022 Nucs for Sale

I currently have several kinds of nucs available, each consisting of five medium depth frames, including adult bees, three frames of brood of varied ages (all of which are offspring of your marked queen), as well as frames of pollen and honey.  You will take the nuc home in a waxed cardboard nuc box ($10), from which you can transfer it to an eight or ten frame medium depth box. You may keep the cardboard box or return it in good condition for a refund of your deposit.

  • Nucs with 2022 Carniolan queens from the Hawaiian Queen Company. Five frame medium nucs with marked queens, three frames of your queen’s brood, and two frames of pollen and honey. http://www.hawaiianqueen.com/our-queens-1.html Likely availability near the end of April. Nuc $200 + $10 deposit on cardboard box = $210.
  • Nucs with 2022 Saskatraz queens from Olivaraz Honey Bees https://www.ohbees.com/. Five frame medium nucs with marked queens, three frames of your queen’s brood, and two frames of pollen and honey. Likely availability near the end of April. Nuc $225 + $10 deposit on cardboard box = $235.
  •                                          
  • Nucs with locally raised 2022 queens bred from local survivor mothers. Queen mothers may be of Italian, Carni, VSH or other desirable stock; all queen mothers have survived one to multiple winters here in SE PA.

I am PA licensed to sell Queens and Nucleus colonies. As part of this program, my queen rearing apiaries are inspected by the PA Department of Agriculture twice a year, typically at the beginning and end of the active beekeeping season. I use no antibiotics or synthetic chemicals in my beekeeping operations.

I do not take advance deposits, as I cannot guarantee availability in advance.  Requests are honored on a first come, first served basis.  Thank you for your interest! Vincent Aloyo
