Honey Bee Nucleus Colony in 5 Frame BN Correx Travel Box / Honey Bee Nuc - 2020 Buckfast Queen - Dorset - Collection Only in Poole


NB collection only. Although I am happy to deliver and install in your hive if needed for a small fee if you live within a 10 mile radius.

Ready 15th June. £50 deposit required to reserve and avoid time wasters. Bees not shown in photo, they will be transferred from the poly nuc the night before collection.

A truly beautiful locally open mated 2020 Buckfast queen heads this calm, prolific, hardworking colony. The queen was open mated and is from a Mother from a reputable UK breeder. They are used to our temperamental English weather and work well on cold days as well as hot days.

They come in a brand new correx travel box ready to transfer into a hive. Supplied on 5 DN4 frames on wired foundation and will have a good mix of eggs, larvae, capped brood and plenty of stores.

I will have treated them with VarroMed twice before collection, this is an organic Varroa mite treatment and will ensure they have minimal mites for you to begin your beekeeping adventure.

They will be inspected before collection to ensure all is well and you get no hidden surprises like swarm cells or supersedure cells!! The Queen can be caged if required so you will be able to check her out on installation.

You are welcome to come and look at the colony prior to purchase/collection to make sure you are happy with it.

Also available as a 6 frame nuc in a brand new Paynes poly nuc £220.
