2014 Nuc Progress Update

As the season moves forward, we have received many inquiries about the progress of the nucs and delivery dates. So we decided to send a group update instead of individual emails and hope this answers your concerns. If not, please feel free to contact us.

Nucs making sheets of honey

Undoubtedly, this is a great season and hopes are high for a good crop of honey although that is also the reason for our current dilemma.

This year the bees decided to make honey, while plans were to have them make bees. This is happening with both, mediums and deeps, but it is more so for the mediums. Sheets, and sheets of honey and maybe a fist size patch of brood. The workers seem to be filling frames of honey faster than the queen can lay in them. We are actively trying to remedy the situation. We are currently moving the bees back to 8 and 10 frame equipment, perhaps the extra space will help.

We are so sorry for the delay, completely out of our planning. It is another one of those “that’s not in the book” moments.

Should you need to modify or cancel your order we completely understand. Our intention is to fulfill every order.
