** Email us to be added to our 2019 notification list for Nucs. Once the weather warms up our supplier will be able to asses stock levels to give us an accurate price and available colonies for sale, we’ll start sales as soon as possible. Those on our waitlist will have priority for purchasing**
Please note that all details below were provided for the 2018 season. 2019 details may change.
All 4 frame colonies have local bees with local or imported Carniolan queens.
Pricing is as follows, with approximate delivery dates stated below:
All nucs will be made available for pick-up during set pick-ups times in the morning and/or the evening. We do not have pick-ups during the day, as the bees must be able to fly to avoid overheating.
All nucs should be hived within a few days of picking up so the colonies don’t initiate swarms.
All nucs come in plastic or cardboard nuc boxes that you get to keep.
Before purchasing nucs you must agree to the Terms and Conditions for purchases. These will be included in full at the checkout window; please review them prior to processing your payment. All nucs 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.
Nucs are only available for pick-up from our Ladner location at 6721 Ladner Trunk Road, Delta, BC. For customer interested in bees from Victoria please contact Urban Bee Honey Farm at 250-580-0263.
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.
