Italian Nuc

March 2019 Nucs: 5 Frames of Bees, Brood, Honey and a laying, Marked Italian Queen

Italian Nucs hived in March will be gentle, full strength colonies in time for the Texas Honey Flow!

Please note that nucs are for pick up only, they cannot be shipped via UPS or USPS.

Please note, the Italian queens we sell are produced by Florida and California breeders. These queens are typically available earlier in the spring season than the BeeWeaver queens we produce in Texas. The genetics of the Italian Bees differ from the BeeWeaver Bees. We do suggest either treating your hive for varroa mites in July - August, or requeening with a BeeWeaver queen prior to that time.

  • Stronger than cardboard nucs.
  • Bees can not chew through the box like they do on cardboard.

  • 3/4" space above and below frames for feeding, medications, queen cages.
  • Handholds for easy carrying.
  • Easy open/close entrance
  • Can be used year after year

    Italian Nucs from Bee Weaver

    Posted by Tom Jernigan on 12th Sep 2018

    I put a nuc in a hive on my ranch on the Red River. It was my first hive. I have a mentor from that area helping me. That nuc grew so quick we split it into two more hives and bought queens from Weaver. They filled two deep brood boxes and was about to swarm the first three months. All three are thriving. My mentor brought in 4 more hives and I can't wait until spring. Can't say enough about BW!
