Nuc Sign Up

Please complete the form below if you’d like to buy a nucleus from the association.  The different options and prices are as follows.

  • We currently can supply two different frame types – National and 14×12.  If you’d like a different frame type please talk to John Palombo or Simon Rice and we’ll look at the practicalities of doing that.
  • You can choose whether you want to keep the nucleus that the bees are supplied in, or return it to the Association.  It’s always handy to have spare nuc box, but we’ll happily take it back if you don’t need it (and the price is lower).
  • Similarly, if you would like to exchange new frames for those supplied in the nuc, then the price is lower again.  The exchanged frames must be new and never have had any bees on them.

You can pay for your nucleus by PayPal, bank transfer or cheque. Details are on the Donate page of how to do this.  Please add a comment in the reference field or add a note if using PayPal saying what the money is for (e.g. “MyName – Nuc”).

The prices for these different options are as follows:

Nuc box + 6 frames of bees£120
6 frames of bees, nuc box returned£80
Bees only, nuc box and new frames returned£60
