Imported queens start in late April or early May, the Nova Scotia ones start in mid to late June. They may be purchased by mail order or for pick-up at our store. New Brunswick and PEI customers only.
Nucleus colonies of bees (“nucs” for short) are usually available each spring around the first week in June for New Brunswick customers only. These are 4-frame nucs that are made up from the bees in our own apiary.
