Experienced, professional beekeeper has a number of over-wintered 6 frame, BS national nucs for sale.
This beekeeper has worked for a commercial bee farm in the South East and was responsible for producing hundreds of honey bee nuclei and full size colonies to private beekeepers and commercial bee farms alike. He also has FERA accreditation for disease recognition and control.
These bees will have been treated, healthy and inspected by the local bee inspector prior to delivery / collection. They will also comply with FERA guide lines for sale of bees, as an absolute minimum. This includes brood disease guarantee. The bees will be sold in a high density polystyrene nucleus box, which is yours to keep. They will have a travel screen fitted to the top, so that the bees don’t over heat on the journey home. This housing will be adequate for the short term (i.e. hours or maybe a day or two), but will need to be transferred into a full size hive to allow them room to expand as soon as possible.
Optional extras include a delivery / installation services, so that you can be sure of safe transfer into their own hive (i.e. no squashed queens). This service is offered for an additional £40, plus 40 pence per mile (both ways) from the Burgess Hill, West Sussex area.
You’re welcome to pick up your bees in person. In which case, you might be interested in the following. For an additional £10, we can cage your queen the day before, thereby easing the transfer into your own full size hive.
Price for these professional quality nucs is a very reasonable £175 each. A £25 deposit is required to secure your order, with the balance payable on delivery / collection.
