Product Description




      We will only have  a handful of Colorado Nucs for sale this year.

 Handmade by me from our bees, these nucs will have one of our legendary Grampas Survivor queens.  The nucs were made in the fall of 2017, in the San Luis Valley Colorado, overwintered and reassessed for queen viability.  Much like chickens, a queens best laying year is her second year of life.  We sold limited number of these "fall" nucs a few years ago, with great success and will most likely move towards making all nucs here in Colorado in the fall. The queens are Italian based from my own breed stock, open mated with native Colorado drones.

   Five frame nucs include cardboard nuc box, three frames of brood in all stages, two honey/pollen and covered in bees. Please contact me at beesformeplease@gmail.com with any questions.

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    Healthy gentle over wintered Colorado bees. These are just what we were looking for and they are building up in numbers rapidly.
    Feel very fortunate to have found Grandpas!

  2. Love the bees! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    So far so good! I was pleasantly surprised that our queen had been marked. Thanks for going the extra step! That made our first time installation a little easier.

  3. Best nucs since the Enola Gaye 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2017

    Nucs doing great. I'm a beginner bee "keeper" but these nucs are much better than last years. More bees, more active, more larve, etc.

  4. Good laying patterns 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2016

    Two Nucs moved to 8 frame deeps 5/21, and 5/22.

    Nuc#1 had 3.5 frames drawn comb, two frames capped brood one frame uncapped, one frame part crazy comb other side not drawn. Beekeeper error to not check frame spacing after move caused crazy comb. Good population, good queen, ready for bigger box.

    Nun#2 had 5 frames drawn, 3,5 frames capped, one frame honey/pollen. Solid pattern throughout all frames, excellent queen. Very ready for bigger box.

    Will add second deep of undrawn foundation to each box in 10 days.

    Yes they did seem a bit more defensive than my older hives.

  5. two each Five frame Nucs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2016

    My first experience in obtaining an installing bees. The first nuc I installed was by the book. Everything matched the research I had done.
    The second was somewhat of a surprise. It was teeming with bees. Every frame was loaded. All in all, a great experience. I'm a very satisfied customer.

  6. after one month 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2015

    After 1 month the bees have doubled in number and have out grown their single brood box. We added another box after finding queen cells. They are producing honey and brood extremely well. They are fairly calm bees even when the box is opened on a breezy day.

  7. 4 Frame Nuc 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2015

    The bees have an excellent temperament. The queen lays in a good pattern. In 17 days they have drawn nearly 4 frames of comb in a foundationless Lang. The only deficit was the nuc box was poorly done and had been patched with duct tape. While waiting for me to arrive home the bees had chewed their way out and were making orientation flights. I had to wait a day to instal. I did repair the box with little effort and scrap lumber so will be able to reuse, better than cheap cardboard therefore 5 stars. Very satisfied.

  10. Our New Nuc 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2015

    We received our new nuc on April 18th and didn't transfer them to our hive box until this past Saturday the 25th. When we opened the nuc box, all four frames were full of brood and honey, and dripping with bees. They have settled in wonderfully and have been out exploring the neighborhood and their new home. We are so pleased with this nuc and the great service from Brent.
