Albuquerque Beekeepers

Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.

I have a few top bar starter Nucs that I am selling.  These are established mini-colonies.  The honeybees know their queen.  These Nuc have proven queens that have survived this last winter.  The queens where raised and breed right here in Albuquerque in 2013.  Each includes a well mated queen, four bars of: bees, drawn comb, brood (both open and sealed) with honey stores and pollen.  Top Bars are 19 ½” long, and will fit into both a Les Crowder plan hive and a TJ Carr plan hive.  They can also be trimmed to fit smaller hives.  I am charging $155 for these survivor Nucs.  There will be a $10 deposit for the waxed cardboard nuc box, plug, and strap, that nucs come in.  The waxed cardboard box makes it easy for you to take your Nucs home and transfer them into your own hive.  Nuc colonies are one of the best ways to start a new hive, because they are an established colony with new bees hatching all the time.  The best way to reach me is to call or text 505-750-7733.  The Nucs will probably be available around the end of March, depending on the weather and the nectar flow.  Contact me soon.  First come, first serve.  I will start a list and let you know when the Nucs are ready.
