2018 Nucs

Skip directly to the online order page.

The CMBA Apiary Project is a club-sponsored apiary with hands-on training for club beekeepers. You can help the program–and you can benefit. In 2018, CMBA is purchasing 5-frame deep nucs from FL. The nucs are fully functioning honeybee colonies each with a 2018 mated queen. Each nuc contains 2-3 frames of brood, 2 frames of honey, and a laying queen. Sales of these nucs are a CMBA fundraiser. Cost per nuc: $165.00. Pick up is tentatively scheduled for April 7, 2018. All nucs are sold on a pre-paid, first-come basis.

Submit your nuc order online here. The mail-in paper nuc order form is here.

Again, pick-up is planned for April 7, 2018, at the
Ag Center.

– If you have already purchased nucleus hives, please see this information sheet on receiving your nucs.

CMBA sells only deep nucs. If you are buying a deep nuc for use in medium boxes, please read this article on transitioning deeps.



A listing of queen-rearing courses and talks, available more or less locally, will be available soon for the 2018 season. (The list is updated seasonally; check back.)

For sources of locally raised queens and nucs, see the Suppliers page here.
