The parent colonies of these nucs spend winter in Colorado until the almond season. After their pollination contract, the beekeeper splits the hives and adds a 2018 Italian queen to the nuc. They are then brought home to Colorado in a climate controlled trailer to help prevent temperature stress on the bees.
We are expecting these bees to be delivered on a day to be determined in the last two weeks of April. We will update you via email as we know more about the delivery day so please make sure you provide a good email address during the checkout process. Purchasing a nuc implies consent to contact you via email.
You are responsible for picking up your bees on delivery day or finding somebody to get your bees for you. To Bee or Not To Bee will not hold or care for your bees beyond the scheduled delivery period. You may cancel your order before April 1st for a 20% administrative fee. After April 1st, there are no refunds for canceled orders.
We do not ship bees, so please check the box for in-store pickup when you see it during the checkout process.
