Pickups can be made by appointment.
Nuc Size: Our five-frame colonies come in a wax coated cardboard nucleus hive box. They are raised in Oregon, with fresh queens, from a highly reputable breeder.
Race: The queens in these nucleus colonies are selected by performance traits, not race. They are either hybrid Italian or hybrid Carniolan. We consider both race hybrids well suited for our climate.
Pickups for nuc's can be done by appointment. Pickups must be done early in the morning around 8-9am, as they will need to be released to fly before it warms up. Pickups can possibly be done at night as well, but morning is preferred.
All nucleus colonies are available for pickup only. We do not ship nucleus colonies.
All livestock orders have a $10 cancellation fee. We use a highly reputable breeder, but we do not guarantee livestock sales.
Please provide an email address and phone number. We do not call customers regarding nucleus hive pickup schedule, but the number is a useful backup in emergencies. All information regarding nucleus hive pickup schedule will be provided on the website and to the email address you provide.
