Maryland Nucleus Colonies & Queens:

Most people purchase bees in nucleus colonies when they want to start beekeeping. A nucleus colony (nuc) provides several advantages.
  • Usually purchased from a local beekeeper, the bees are adapted to your area.
  • A miniature colony with bees, a laying queen, honey and freshly stored pollen, a nuc quickly builds up the first year.
  • Unlike packages, which ship in from the south with the associated pests and problems like africanized bees and small hive beetle, our nucs are built from tested Maryland stock.
  • The five frames quickly transfer into your equipment, creating less stress on the bees and the beekeeper.
  • No expensive shipping charges. You pick up your hive in Middletown, MD.
  • If you have brand new equipment, we can install the nuc directly into your hive at no extra charge.
