(To be announced) The first round of brood is sealed, the queen maturing, the queen calmer for transport. Our pickups are in the evening after the field force has returned, or dawn (before they start flying) Where:
833 Park Hill Rd,
Benson, VT. 05743.
How: Pick up in nuc box provided ONLY. Transporting the nuc: Provide more than adequate ventilation in your equipment, without allowing the bees to move freely out of the box. When you get home, place the nuc in the exact location you wish them to live and remove screens, so the bees may freely ventilate and orient early the next morning. Transferring: If you bring your nuc home in the nuc box, you will need to transfer to a deep within a few days. Equipment needed: I grow these nucs into 2 deeps or a deep and a medium (and sometimes another super). These 1st season colonies LOVE to draw foundation (and or foundation-less). Remember, my experience is inextricably tied to the landscape in which my bees live. Therefore, I cannot guarantee how big they will grow, just that they will grow beyond the container you buy from me. I do not plan to harvest honey from these first season colonies, but rather to allow for maximum brood nest expansion and self-provisioning for their first winter.
