Information About our Bees:

  • Mite Treatment
    • The nucs are tested for mites and will be below treatment threshold (which is 3 mites per 100 bees) when the nuc is picked up
    • We suggest only treating for mites with approved over-the-counter mite treatments 3 times per year - once in the Spring, once after honey has been extracted, and then six weeks after the honey has been extracted.
  • Queen Bee
    • The queen bee in your nuc was born this year and is standing on her brood
    • We do not mark the queen bee because we have noticed more chewing of the queen when she is marked 
    • We do not sell queen bees individually at this time.  
  • Feeding the Bees
    • We suggest feeding your nuc as often as you can until the nuc is working every frame in the bottom box
    • We suggest doing a 1:1 sugar-to-water ratio for feeding in the Spring and a 2:1 sugar-to-water ration for feeding in the Fall.
  • Adding a Super
    • We suggest adding the second box once the bees are working every frame in the bottom box

When you purchase a nuc from Lockhart Honey Farms®, you are buying your bees directly from the beekeeper.  We only have a limited number of nucs available, so be sure to purchase yours before they're gone!
