nucs consist of six recent hoffman self spacing BS brood frames,
all with drawn comb
and at least three or four frames of brood in all stages,
plus one of food,
all well covered in bees, and headed by a young Buckfast Queen.
All nucs are very strong and ready to transfer straight into
a full sized hive, where rapid expansion
into a full sized colony will very soon take place.
are for collection only, you will be shown the brood/bees
plus of course the Queen on collection.
bees are very productive, weather permitting of course, and
generally of a very good temperament. All our queens are reared
by us and mated in our isolated sites here on Exmoor.
new beekeepers full advice can be given at time of collection,
about feeding and building up your
new hive of bees, and their aftercare.
I would be very happy to give further advice and support via
e mail or telephone for as long as needed,
if you have any questions with regards to your bees and I
will answer them all.
