2018 Nucs

We have over doubled our colonies to support nuc and queen production. We are increasing  our queen rearing to 250 mating nucs. We have added Minnesota Hygienic and Michael Palmer queens to our genetic stocks. This year the pickup dates will be weekly instead of one large date to improve our ability to provide quality and timely nucs. Mite counts this year have been very low with New York state inspection have 4 zero Mite counts last spring. There are also no small hive Beatles present in hives. The only treatments used are organic acids for mites. We will also be offering nucs on medium frames and limited number of 3lb packages. We have had great over wintering success and very few losses with our local Northern raised bees and am happy to be offering these nucs to our area with many happy customers. Thank you!
