Nucleus Colony


Our nucs are made from strong, well-mated and successful queens. We personally inspect the nucs prior to pickup to ensure manageable, healthy bees. Unfortunately, as with the nature of bees, we cannot provide guarantees on survival, however, we would like to give our bees the best possible chance so please read our beekeeping blog and reach out to us with questions as needed.

What to know about our nucs:

  • Healthy, productive queen and bee colony
  • Nucleus colonies will contain ample brood, pollen, and honey – the 5th frame is usually in the process of being built out in order to avoid putting the bees into “swarm mode”
  • We will reach out to schedule a time for pickup – Usually on a Saturday morning
  • If within a 25 minute drive of Bryan/College Station – we can deliver and install if requested. If outside this area, please contact us for install fee if you’d like us to install in your apiary.

Our nucleus colonies are made from strong, healthy bees and are selected for honey production, temperament, and survivability. We personally inspect the nucs prior to pickup to ensure manageable, healthy bees upon transferring ownership to you. Beekeeping is a fun and challenging hobby, and although we cannot guarantee survival, we will help you as much as we can along the way. These nucs include a mated queen and 4-5 frames of bees, brood, honey and/or pollen.

    I’m looking at starting a hive with your 2019 nuc.
    I am going to Navasota this weekend to look at that operation.
    I have the new plastic insulated bee hive…ready for the challenge
