LOCAL NUCS 2019
- Will contain 4-5 DEEPframes, a laying Queen, 2-3 frames of brood, an ample population of bees, and adequate food stores. This is considered one Nuc.
- Our First Offering of Nucs, available Early April, will likely bee 5-frame in cardboard boxes. We will split our overwintered colonies as soon as the weather supports the re-emergence of a solid drone population. This Second Offering will bee 4-frame Nucs in our wooden boxes which house 2 Nucs (pictured top right). Singles possible, yet tending a minimum of 2 colonies supports self-sustaining beekeeping.

- To reserve your Nucs, we need only your vitals; name, email address if available, telephone #, and the quantity of Nucs needed. Need not any $ now. Payment expected when picking up your Nucs, CASH or check payable to Swarmbustin' Honey.

WORKSHOPS: April thru July, beeginning at 10am
We will bee conducting 4 workshops in 2019. Xact dates TBD, yet they will bee on a Saturday, April thru July. Our informal workshops bee free to those on our Nuc lists, and focus upon the bees needs in the upcoming month. We will bee breaking into smaller groups according to xperience and interest, and the Swarmbustin’ crew will illustrate various techniques employed in assisting with their needs.
