I will have 5 frame nucs with marked queen available in the spring of 2021. Accepting orders in January 2021
For the last several years, they have been priced at $180. I'm holding steady although my prices are going up!
Busting out with bees and tons of brood.
Ordersare accepted starting January 2021. Specify whether you want a medium or deep nucs. A non-refundable $90 deposit is required. First in - First out (FIFO). Please ask questions.
They will be ready on ... well since hive development is completely weather dependent, they will be ready exactly when they are but most are ready in the first half of May. :)
Please ask questions.
It is first come first serve, however so order early.
Allow me to introduce my new friend Dennis Helmer. Dennis is a former commercial pollinator and is now raising quality queens in Crumpton, MD, Queen Anne county, near the Delaware State line.
This is a real game changer for the whole Delmarva peninsula and western shore too.
He plans to have queens on stock all season long.
Contact him for your needs. (Let him know you got his information from me.)
Medium or Deep?
What does that mean?
I am not planning on offering any packages in 2021 but can help direct you to other sources. See the call-out box (below) on whether a package or nuc is appropriate for you.
The packages are three pound packages. BeeGeorge has bought them from the same place for years and they have always been top notch.

Should I get a package or a nuc?
Packages - this is three pounds of bees with a queen in a screened cage. (see pic above) You install (pour) them into your awaiting equipment. If you don't have drawn comb, I strongly recommend getting a nuc. Its very hard on the bees to start from scratch. They will do it, but it's just harder than necessary. Packages are less expensive than nucs though.
Nucs - stands for nucleus, is a fully functional hive with a laying queen. It's just smaller than a regular hive. BeeGeorge nucs have 5 drawn combs so that your new bees are already working away. (see pic above) As well as the bees, you also get the frames. Installation is also easier than a package. They are more expensive than packages, however.
