Pick up dates and time: Wiggins,MS
Nucs will be available for pickup April
thru mid May (specific dates will be determined
based on the spring weather conditions).
When ordering Nucs you must include the total
number requested and the desired dates you will be picking them up.
Nucs will be avaible for pick up at our shop in Wiggins from 6:00 – 7:30 PM on a Friday evening and/or 6:30 – 8:00 AM on a Saturday morning. Bring your veil and gloves and pick out your nucs. Bees travel best in/on an open truck bed. I strongly encourage everyone to transport nucs on/in the back of an open truck bed. Once you have selected and loaded up your nucs we are no longer responsible for them.
OUT for 2017
Inspect your queens when you receive them but DO NOT open battery boxes inside the house.
Water your queens upon receiving them.
Keep them out of the sun and away from any pesticides.
The shipping containers are for shipment only. These queens should be used as soon as possible. If stored, they should be put into a bank hive.
Be prepared for your queens. We do not recommend preparing your hives until you have received your queens. Delays can happen.
If you plan on re-queening a hive with a large population, we recommend that you slow introduction by adding tape to the candy end of the cage and hand release her after 5 days.
We sold out for 2017 nucs.
