A nucleus colony (“nuc” for short) is 5 drawn-out frames in a temporary box, complete with honey and brood. They come with a queen and approximately 10,000 worker bees. A medium nuc will fit with medium Langstroth hive boxes. Haw Creek Honey in the Asheville area will be supplying our medium nucs this year, and we are expecting them to be ready in mid-April.
These nucs will be queened with various queen stocks. We recommend these for new bee keepers that plan to use medium hive equipment.
