Bees-Starter/Nucleus Colony-Deep Frame-OVERGROWN!

$ 250.00

These are not on medium frame they are on DEEP frames, usually overgrown loaded with bees, honey and burr comb.  So many bees they are likely to swarm if left in this box for for more than 2 weeks.   We can not guarantee which breed of bee, since these are usually quick splits in the flurry of Spring crazy season.

We love our friendly little honey bees, and the honey that the work so hard to make. We now sell both honey and honey bees. We have been awarded 7 grants from the US Department of Agriculture, by the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Experiment (NESARE) grant program.  We are now a part of the Heartland Honey Bee Breeders Coop working with both Purdue and Penn State Universities breeding bees that bite the legs off of the varroa mites which have been plaguing them.  We believe happy hardy honeybees are the future.

Purdue Mite-biters , or Mite-maulers they are dealer's choice on these.

They tend to be lighter and produce more honey.  Honey production tends to be over 120 pounds, and overwintering in larger clusters. They are very hygienic showing brood removal when we test them using Harbo (mating mites in cell) or Buchler (pin-killed brood) assays.
