  • $165 - 4 Frame Nucleus Colony Local Pickup ONLY ($65 Deposit)


    McComBees Apiaries Nucs are started with a queen cell and bees from my apiaries. The queen hatches in her Nuc box, mates, and is cared for by the bees that have been by her side since hatching.  So that I can be assured of the queens temperament and laying pattern,  I keep my Nucs until the second egg laying cycle or until they have "grown" into all 4 frames. By purchasing a "grown" Nuc you get a true family and reflection of the quality of their queen. Also you get a Nuc that is ready for rapid expansion.


    Balance of $100 is due at pickup.

    Pre-Order for 2021

      Mid April Nucs are from overwintered Nuc Colonies started the previous season. Late May Nucs are from daughter queens of splits from overwintered Nucs.

      Your Nuc will have 4 drawn frames containing brood, honey, and pollen. The queen will be found, verified and marked during transfer into corrugated plastic EZ Nuc box. I can also transfer direct into your equipment upon request. 

      Nucs are transfered the morning of the pickup day to assure you get the necessary field bees, confirm a marked queen and to limit the stress on the colony.  If you return the EZ Nuc box within 30 days undamaged I will reimburse $10.


      Once the Nuc(s) leave my care I cannot guarantee performance or health. Due to many factors that influence colony health including unforeseen complications during transportation or individual beekeeping practices, I do not guarantee my Nucs(s) or provide refunds once the Nucs(s) have left my care. Nucs cannot be exchanged. If I am not able to fullfil your order I will reimburse your deposit.


      Nucleus Colonies are ONLY available for pickup at 16832 Prine Road, Yoder, IN 46798.

      Colonies are transfered to their Nuc box the afternoon before or morning of pickup.

      Please choose the Arrange Pickup/Local Delivery option at checkout.

      The balance of $100 is due upon recieving your Nuc (or $90 if you supplied your own equipment).  Payment can be made with Cash, Cash App, Paypal or Credit Card.
