“Matt went above and beyond helping me get bees as a present for my Mother. Conditions were poor, but he still made up a split and delivered it as promised. He prides himself on delivering disease free and strong colonies. He is accommodating and a genuinely nice guy. He also assisted with advice after the bees were installed and was infinitely helpful. He is knowledgeable and willing to help.”Joel Fraser

Our Nucleus Hive Production Method
We Remove 2 capped frames of brood, a frame of honey and shake an additional frame of bees from our Honey production hives into our 6 frame Lyson nucleus boxes. We leave them for 4 days destroy any queen cells being built then introduce a mated queen, after 4 weeks we will inspect the hive and once satisfied with bee population and brood patter we offer the hives for sale.
Our 6 frame Nucleus Beehives are split from our honey production hives early October, we move those splits from the external sites back to our farm in Mudgee so we can monitor them closely during the requeening stage. To ensure we do not spread any potential disease throughout our apiary we perform full brood inspections on each of our honey production hives before splitting.
After 4 days we Perform full brood inspections on each of the splits removing any queen cells, doing this after 4 days ensures the beehive doesn’t have any of the raw materials required to produce their own queen. We will then introduce our Mated Italian queen, with all queen cells removes and no larvae young enough to be made into a queen the hives will readily accept a mated queen. This method ensured the bees do not swarm the caged queen potentially overheating her and also guarantees the queen you introduce is the one that becomes the new queen of the hive.
The newly introduced queen will begin laying within a week of being introduced, once we have seen the laying pattern of the queen and are happy with the nature of the colony we offer the nucleus beehives for sale.
Nucleus beehives are significantly faster at building up than packages of bees as they have 4-5 frames of brood already in production and have a queen that is already tested within the hive, you not only get 6 frames of clean brood on young foundation and frames but also a strong young population of bees that is readily refreshed by the the brood.
