SPRING NUC DEPOSIT
2021 Spring Nucs from overwintered UP colonies
$175 EACH NUC
50% DUE NOW ($87.50)
Bee Wise Farms has a limited number of 5 frame medium nucs with Pol Line varroa sensitive queens available for the 2021 season. You will receive your nucs in a Jester Bee EZ nuc box. To reserve your nucs a 50% deposit is due at this time. Remaining balance can be paid at pick up.
These nucs come from splits made from our overwintered colonies in Newberry, MI. The queens are overwintered from this apiary and are Pol Line varroa sensitive hygienic (VSH) queens that came from the VP Pole Line breeding program. These queens were specifically selected for VSH traits and are one of several lines of queens available in the US with VSH traits.
Note: VSH bees will help with managing varroa levels but there is never a replacement for good monitoring and varroa management, no matter what your queen is bred for.
Projected availability of nucs
Nucs are projected to be available for pick-up sometime from the end of May - mid June (weather dictates nuc availability). Once we do splits in the spring, we will notify you of projected availability dates and schedule a date/time for pick up.
Pick up location: Bee Wise Farms 10192 State Highway M28, Newberry, MI.
