Each winter and spring, we will be taking pre-orders for nucs. The nucs for the most part are Italian bees. Before nucs are delivered, they are montiored to see for the acceptance of the queen, and to see if it is a good laying queen.
We now provide nucs in Ontario, and a small amount in Quebec and are made up for the most part from our yards. If for some reason we can't fill all the orders, we have a relationship with another beekeeper to obtain extra nucs from them to meet or orders. In some cases, we may have to cancel your order with a full refund because of a shortage of nucs.
The deadline for ordering nucs is set for the end of May, but at anytime, the suppliers can tell us that they are sold out. So it is up to you to make sure you order well in advance. Nucs MUST be pre-paid before we will order your nuc with the supplier, and there is NO CANCELATION OR REFUND.
Nucs will not be available for shipping as it is too much of a hassle to properly package securely for shipping by couriers. You will be notified when and where you will have to come to pick up your nuc. You will be notified 1-2 days in advance when your nuc is ready so make sure to check your emails or phone messages if we can't get hold of you. If we don't hear back within a day or two, we will continue to the next people in the list.
If you have any other questions regarding nucs, please send us an email at email@example.com.
