What is a Nuc?

Updated: Mar 25

A nuc (pronounced like NUKE) is a fully functioning colony, just smaller. It contains an accepted, marked and laying queen, eggs, larvae, capped brood, 4 drawn frames containing a mix of resources and or brood and one miscellaneous frame.


The nuc holds bees of all ages. This is superior to a package and why we don't offer packages. You take it home and drop it in your ten frame deep box and that's it!


I always suggest feeding the nuc syrup and pollen sub. Any frames you currently own that are displaced can be saved for making splits later on. Please shoot me a note or give me a call if you have any questions.


Thanks for supporting local beekeeping,
