Nucs Sold Out!
Mad Urban Bees is offering Five-Frame Nucleus Hives (Nucs) in May of 2017. The queens in these nucs are Carniolan- Itallian hybrids and are all Varroa survivors.
Sign up for the Nuc waiting list below. If there are extra nucs, you will be contacted in the order of the list.
These nucs will be ready to install and are an easy way for new beekeepers to get hive a going. Nucs are great way to start for beginners, they work well for hives with undrawn comb, and a great way to replace winter losses. Bee colonies in nucs can start foraging immediately and build faster.
Learn about honeybees and urban beekeeping with Nathan Clarke, founder and owner of Mad Urban Bees. Find out how to start and tend a beehive in your own backyard. He will share facts about honeybees and what they need to survive in an urban environment.
