This is a deposit for reserving 4 frame nucs, consisting of 2 frames of brood in all stages and 2 frames of feed/pollen/empty cells for laying along with bees covering all 4 frames.
Early nucs are available around the last week of April and they come with a overwintered Carniolan queen mated in the Summer of 2021.
You will need to come back to the website and pay the remaining balance before taking possession of the nuc if you choose not to pay the full amount up front. This deposit portion is fully refundable up until February 15th. The final payment is completely refundable upon cancelation of the order.
If this item is out of stock you can subscribe to be notified if more become available.
Please contact me to discuss delivery options if you are not able to pick them up on Salt Spring Island or at one of several pre-arranged meeting places.
