USPS is the only shipping option for live bees!


Save 7% on nucs during the month of December! Get your nuc for $195.91 (customer pick-up) or $261.64 (delivered) instead of $210.65 (customer pick-up) or $281.33 (delivered). 

The earlier you order...the more you save! No discounts will be available after January 1, 2015, as full prices will apply to all nuc orders.

Nucs can be picked up at PMTC or shipped USPS.

A non-refundable 50% deposit is required for all Nuc orders.

Bees can only ship to the Continental United States. We can not ship live bees to Alaska or Hawaii.

  • Our nucs are five deep frames of eggs, larva, capped brood and honey with an Italian Queen. About 4 to 5 lbs. of bees and brood. This is a hive halfway filled out already, about 6 weeks of work for a package of bees to accomplish if all goes well.
  •  We also offer Package Bees or the Complete Deluxe Hive with Bees. Please go to the left tool bar to Package Bees, Complete Hive with Bees, or Queen Bees to obtain more information. Thanks, PMTC.

Nucs for the 2015 season

A package of nucs is only $195.91 (customer pick-up) and $261.64 (delivered) during the month of December. The price will go up every month, so order today! Jump start your beekeeping with a Nucleus Colony from PMTC! Our nucs are created from larger colonies that have been fully established. Each nuc you order consists of five deep frames that contain eggs, larva, capped brood and honey. The advantage of purchasing a nuc is that it is further along in its development than a package of bees would be. Nucs are packaged snuggly in wooden boxes so the frames don’t bounce around during transit. The Queen is housed in a separate cage with five to seven worker bees to care for her. The box has screened vent holes on each end towards the bottom of the box. The lid also has two, large, screened vent holes as well. The price varies upon checkout due to your preferred method of shipping and your option of paying 50% or 100%. The price listed on the right is the price of a 50% deposit of customer pickup. Please note that all orders require a 50% deposit upon checkout. Full payment is due prior of shipment. Please select the size, shipping date, method of shipping or pickup, and percentage of payment.
