Nucleus Colonies

Nucleus colonies are small well-balanced colonies which can develop into a full sized colony over time.
The photo shows a 6 frame plywood nuc ready to go with brood of all ages laid by the queen in the hive although we sell 5 or 6 frame nucs depending on the time of year.
We often have overwintered nucs available for early spring and can also make them up with new queens in summer. Nucs are generally on BS Deep frames - contact us for other sizes.
