Early 4-frame Nuc with Imported Buckfast Queen
Humble Bee Inc.
We are not taking new orders for this item due to uncertainty about whether the queens can be shipped to Canada
Queens may not be shipped as scheduled on May 4th - we will make alternate arrangements for everyone who has already placed an order
Our Nucleus Colonies on Deep Langstroth frames include:
- 2.5 frames of organic Ontario brood
- 1 frame of honey
- 1 Queen bee
For the 1st time we will be offering early Nucs with imported Queens. They will be coming from Tenuta Tetiro-Acerbi in Italy Just like our local Humble Bee Stock, these queens are selected for hygienic behaviour and gentleness, as well as VSH (varroa-sensitive hygiene). Bred in Northern Italy, these queens should be adapted to our climate.
We are licensed and inspected Queen & Nuc producers (a copy of our Queen and Nuc permit is available upon request)
Your nuc will be packed in a reusable box for transport and can be picked up in Hamilton. We will send you a reminder email prior to your pickup date with all the details about when, where, and how to safely pick up your bees - no extra preparation is required.
