NUCLEUS COLONIES

NUCLEUS COLONIES

**2021 Overwintered Nucs Now Available for Pre Order**

We produce five and six frame Buckfast F1 and local mated, Welsh Black overwintered nucleus colonies. These are headed by a 2020 F1 queen that is proven to have overwintered successfully. They are overwintered in North Wales and are of excellent temperament, with tremendous disease resistance.

All colonies are treated with ApiVar in August and Oxalic Acid (ApiBioxal) in December, to treat against varroa.  

Prices are detailed below:​

  • 6 frame buckfast nuc with poly nuc - £245

  • 5 frame buckfast nuc in correx nuc - £220


In order to secure your BMH 2021 Nucleus Colony, we take a £20 deposit. Orders are strictly limited and we sell out early every year, so early orders are advised.

 

We now offer a delivery option to mainland UK for £30! 

  • BUCKFAST BREEDER QUEENS

    We only use F0 Buckfast breeder queens from Denmark/Germany as we believe these result in F1 queens with superior temperament and disease resistance. They also produce a lot of honey! 

  • STRONG COLONIES

    We don't let the nucleus colony leave us until they are a strong unit. They will have at least 3 frames of brood in all stages and at least 2 frames of stores. We will notify you one week in advance of colony availability. 

  • AFTER CARE

    Once you have installed your nucleus colony, we recommend feeding with 1:1 sugar syrup until all foundation frames are fully drawn. Make sure you remove the feeders once 80% of the brood frames are drawn to avoid swarming.
