2021 has been a difficult year with the changing of rules and resetting of different areas of our business, the weather played a huge part in a very difficult season. This year we are hoping for a better season. British reared overwintered Nuc’s of bees are now available to order, understandably the stocks for the 2022 season will be limited.
These bees have been reared from British stocks, weather permitting they will be available from late May to early June 2022, your Nuc will build up during the coming months and should produce a small amount of late season honey.
Your Nuc, will consist of 5 frames to include brood at all stages, capped open with eggs, and a marked queen.
Please follow the instructions that will arrive with your Nuc to ensure you have a successful start, enabling it to build up.
Bees ordered for delivery will be posted out in a 5-frame wooden Nuc box with a vented screen made in our factory. This is a special Next-Day Royal Mail service.
Please understand, weather plays a huge part in beekeeping, overwintered bees require a time to build up to make a viable Nuc, the overwintered queen can only lay at the rate of young bees available to cover the emerging eggs, larvae and sealed brood.
Please ensure we have your correct contact details when you place your order. When your bees are ready, we will contact you for the final payment of your bees. The balance will need to be paid before the delivery or collection of your bees. If we cannot contact you your order will be held in a suspended order account until we hear from you.
