Nuc (nucleus hive) including 5 frames of a queen, bees, brood, honey and pollen.
In the spring we have strong hives that have returned from California almond pollination that we split. These make excellent nucs that give beekeepers a quick and reliable way to repopulate or grow their apiary. Each nucleus (nuc) has a queen (proven layer), bees, pollen and honey. There are 5 frames in a cardboard or wooden nuc box.
