What is a Nuc?


The standard Ontario nuc is 2 frames of brood with a laying queen bee, a frame of honey and pollen and a foundation frame. These frames are put in a four frame box which can be wooden or a short term cardboard shipping box.

The current cost of this style of nuc is $215 in your own box.

Bees can be shaken into top bar hives or other irregular equipment for $250.

Pick up can be either at my home location in Guelph or at a mutually agreed upon designated bee yard location.

An additional charge of $75 per frame will be charged to those who want more frames of brood in the nuc beyond the standard 2.

Availability is usually in the last week of May.

Please note: prices subject to change without notice.
