You’ll get a strong, healthy colony of bees. If you’re buying a NUC, they’ll be housed in a 6 frame, polystyrene hive that’s been specially designed to keep and raise nucleus colonies of honey bees. This is yours to keep. It may also be fitted with a travel screen, which will help stop the colony over-heating during transportation to your apiary. All of our colonies comply with the recommendations laid out by both FERA/BeeBase and the BBKA.
