Nucs, Packages & Queens

5-Frame Nucs and Packages:

2019 nucs and packages are now available for pre-order! Pickups will be scheduled in April or May, 2019 depending on weather and availability.  Please note: packages and nucs are available for PICKUP ONLY at our location in Upstate NY.  Betterbee does not ship packages or nucs.


Looking to requeen a hive, make a split, or prepare your own nucs? We offer mated queens, available mid-April through August for shipment or to pick up.  Please check back in March 2019 for details on 2019 queens.   

If you are planning to start a new colony, you will need a nuc or package. A queen by herself cannot establish a new colony.
