A 6 frame nuc on British Standard frames making it suitable for National or WBC hives. 

With roughly about 12,000 bees and a marked and mated Queen, our nucs are bound to have a great start in the Spring after you collect them.  There will be minimum of 3 frames of brood and plenty of stores, everything that a colony needs to thrive.   We pride ourselves on the good condition of the nucs and we believe you wont be disappointed.    

Our Summertime nucs are built up that Spring on new frames with fresh foundation and a nice young Queen.    We nurture them as they build up and are regularly checked for signs of disease or problems to ensure the colony is healthy and the Queen is of good stock.    They are also checked regularly by the bee inspectors from the National Bee Unit.    Only then, once we are 100% happy with them, do we prepare them for a Summer collection by our customers.   They Come in our Polystyrene Nuc hive which is safe and secure for travelling and is yours to keep afterwards too!
