New Bees for a New Year!

Reserve your nucleus hive for 2019

All nucs must be ordered through this form. It is the only way we have an official record of your reservation. If you do not receive a response the order did not go through.

Premium nucleus hive of overwintered Indiana queen and bees. The cost for 2019 is $185. No deposit required. Fill out and submit the form and to get on the list. Nucs will be ready sometime mid-May to early June. It all depends on the weather.

Check out our Bee School 101 in October.

When they are ready to go to their new home RJ Honey will contact you. You will be asked to make an appointment to pick up your bees.

Here’s what you’ll need.

A complete one deep hive; bottom board, deep with five frames, inner cover, and top cover.

You’ll need a ratchet strap. No bungy cords. No pull straps. Really, a ratchet strap.

You may purchase ratchet straps at $10 each or have your hive body and bottom board stapled together for $10 when you come.

Bring your protective equipment.

Don’t wear dark clothing. Bees particularly don’t appreciate black.

If you have long hair, put it in a pony tail or wear it up. Bees sometimes get tangled and there’s no good ending to that story. A ball cap helps, too.
