Our bee breeder Helen has some strong nucleus colonies available for pick up over the next couple of weeks. You can email me at email@example.com and I’ll pass on details or visit her new website at Helen’s Living Garden. The nucs are Buckfast x Caucasian bees on at least 6 frames with all stages of brood with stores and a marked home bred queen. All in accordance with FERA recommendations for nuclei sales. Each nucleus will have been treated against varroa prior to collection.
Time to respond to customer requests. I’ve had numerous enquiries as to whether I’d make a ‘Super’ for a Nucleus Hive. Well here it is (See pic below). It’s sized to sit atop of our 6 Frame Nucleus Hive and comes with fitted metal runners. The work involved in making one is more or less the same as for a full sized National Hive Super so unfortunately they can’t be sold for half price for the small amount of material that’s saved. But they’ve been requested a good few times now and we try our best to satisfy demand.

They are now available to purchase in the left hand column. All the best and happy beekeeping. Nick and Adriana.
