We have a few more Russian Nucs available from Richland Honey Bees, LLC. It's late, but not too late to start a colony this year, particularly with Russians. They overwinter in a much smaller colony than their more "Mediterranean" cousins.

Nucs are an excellent way to heal a failing colony, provide a supply of resources (Queen, eggs, brood, etc) for other colonies, or simply inject new life into a low population colony.

These nuc come in a 5 frame deep cardboard transport box. At least 4 frames will have drawn comb, eggs, and brood. The queens are marked green for 2019.

Cost- $200

I'D LIKE TO GET THEM OUT AS EARLY AS TOMORROW MORNING! (6-29-19).

If you are interested, please let us know ASAP at - [email protected].
