Super Bee Rescue Nucleus Honey Bee Colony
$200 includes local delivery and installation
We take the best of our rescued beehives and watch them for at least 3 weeks to check temperament and health, and then make them available to our friends. The local genetics have a higher survival rate than imported bees. They also need little or no treatments as they have been surviving without any beekeeper involvement.
The nuc comes with a mated laying queen with a good laying pattern, 2+ frames primarily of brood, and 2 frames of nectar and pollen. With normal rainfall, I would expect most of these colonies to double in size.
I ask for a $100 deposit to start making your nuc in langstroth deep or shallow, top bar, or warre. $100 is due upon delivery and installation.
Currently we have available for reservation:
Langstroth -SOLD OUT Top Bar – SOLD OUT Warre -SOLD OUT
To reserve your hive please send your $100 deposit to Super Bee Rescue, 4188 Foothill Rd, Carpinteria, CA 93013. Please include contact / delivery information and the type of hive you are reserving. Checks can be made out to Super Bee Rescue.
I have decided not to keep a waiting list this year because of the large number of interested individuals. I will announce if and when I will take additional reservations on my newsletter and Facebook page.
