For customers interested in picking up bees from Victoria please contact Urban Bee Honey Farm at 250-580-0263.
All nucleus colonies are locally raised, with mostly imported queens. We are currently offering a 5-frame nuc option for pick-up only, on May 28th. We are taking full payment to reserve nucs. Please review all details below and the Terms & Conditions at checkout prior to processing payment. All nucs purchased include a $30 non-refundable deposit; please review cancellation details in our Terms & Conditions.
Once picked-up all nucs should be hived after a few days to avoid swarming. If you are not able to hive your nuc immediately you will need to place it in the spot it will be hived, and let the bees fly in the meantime.
All nucs come in plastic or cardboard nuc boxes that you get to keep.
Please note that our expected costs can change closer to the delivery dates, and as such prices are subject to change. If you have already reserved with us and we reduce our price you will receive a refund or credit for the difference. If we increase our price you keep the lower price.
Note to New Beekeepers: These nucs contain only the honeybees, queen and a few frames for a new hive, and you will also need to separately purchase hive equipment to install them into. We offer beginner beekeeping kits which are a great options for new beekeepers. You will also need protective clothing (we normally recommend beginners start with a full suit).

All nuc purchases include a $30 non refundable deposit. Should you cancel your order before the bees arrive on site you will receive a refund less the deposit. If you fail to pickup your bees on the delivery day without otherwise making arrangements with us you forfeit your bees and payment.

Nuc boxes are not always 100% bee-tight; we recommend you either pick your bees up in a truck, or if you must pick-up in a vehicle where your nuc is in the vehicle with you we suggest you bring a sheet (like a bed sheet) with you to cover the nuc colony. You may also wish to bring duct tape or packaging tape to assist with sealing the box. We assume that the customer has made adequate preparations for safe transportation for the bees and for themselves. Urban Bee Supplies Inc. assumes no responsibility for any damages incurred during loading or transportation of the bees. These details are also included with the Terms & Conditions which will be included at checkout.
