5 Frame Nucleus with UK reared queen
All of our 5 frame nucs with UK produced queens are mated and built up in polystyrene nuc boxes to ensure they have the best conditions for a newly established colony. Produced on British Standard National DN4 frames and transferred over to a temporary correx travel box the day before collection. Each nuc will have a young laying queen that is marked accordingly for the year, three to four frames of brood in different stages (eggs, larvae and sealed brood) with at least one frame of food. All of our honey/nuc production colonies are treated for varroa during the Autumn using approved treatments, keeping colonies strong and healthy for us to produce nucs in the spring. Our nucs are perfect for all levels of experience whether you're a 'newbee' taking on your first hive or a commercial beekeeper wanting to expand.
