Overwintered nucs are scheduled to be produced in Autumn 2018 with gentle itallian queens. Nucs will be overwintered in our Paradise Honey 6 frame nucs with a top feeder to get them through. Then late winter on a warm day, we carry out a final health check before they are ready for collection earluy September!
Please note that we do require the return of our insulated nuc box and a deposit for the box will be required on pickup...
Overwintered Nucs are very strong with an established queen - perfect if you need to increase your numbers early spring or get a head start on honey production. Other nucs will not be available until late November 2017!
Spring Nucs come in a coreflute transportable 5 frame deep nucleus hive containing 5 drawn frames of honey, pollen, capped brood, larvae, eggs and a mated queen. * Note: Nucs are split from disease free colonies in Bunyip Victoria.
