We take pride in our nucs. There is a page attached to this site about buying nucs. We try to adhere to that information. We try to develop our nucs to the point they are ready to expand to new frames in your box. We pride ourselves on nucs with a lot of bees. Most nucs are going to be Carniolan or of that decent. We have a few Italians but like the darker bees for this climate. Both will do well here in Central Ohio.
