Honey Bee Nucs For Sale – 2019 Pick-up While Supplies Last
BZ Honey is offering a limited number of honey bee nucs for local bee enthusiasts. A nuc is our preferred method of starting a colony because of the reduced stress on the bees when transporting and installing into full size boxes.
The nuc will be a 5 frame, honey bee colony in a temporary box, ready to install in your hive. Frames will include brood, pollen, and honey. The colony will contain nurse bees, foragers, and a 2019 mated queen. The 2019 pickup dates for honey bee nucs and Beekeeping Starter Kits will be a Saturday and Sunday in April at 405 E Main St. in Tomball, TX. Exact dates will be announced by March 2019 once we know how strong the colonies are after winter.
These nucs have built up well for us the past two years and some hives have provided a first-year honey crop (though not guaranteed).
