Five Frame Nucleus Colony - Italian
Five-frame Italian Nucleus Colony Expected mid-April - mid-May
The parent colonies of these nucs spend winter in Colorado until the almond season. After their pollination contract, the beekeeper splits the hives and adds a 2021 Italian queen to the nuc. They are then brought home to Colorado for quality control and final delivery by Lazy Bee Ranch.
We expect to distribute these nucs at To Bee or Not To Bee during the middle part of April, but the final day may be any time during April or May. We will update you via email as we know more about the delivery day. During the checkout process, please make sure you provide a valid email address that you regularly monitor. Purchasing a nuc implies consent to contact you via email.
Please understand that bees are an agricultural product and that delivery dates can and do change due to circumstances that are outside of our control. The weather in California and Colorado, and the road conditions during the delivery time period may force us to change the delivery date to ensure the safety of the bees.
You are responsible for picking up your bees on delivery day or finding somebody to get your bees for you. To Bee or Not To Bee will not hold or care for your bees beyond the scheduled delivery period. You may cancel your order before March 15th for a 10% administrative fee. After March 15th, there are no refunds for canceled orders.
We do not ship bees, so please check the box for in-store pickup when you see it during the checkout process.
