Honey Bee Closeup

Jeff Maddox of 417Bees.com and Jeremy Toth have 3 varieties of Bees for sale.

The three Nuc options for the 2019 season include Local Feral Survivor Stock, VSH Carniolan Nucs and Saskatraz Queens / Nucs.

Local Nucs:

5 deep frames or 8 medium frames. These are local survivor stock carefully selected over the last 10 years in the Springfield/Rogersville, MO area. Usually ready by the first week in May depending on the weather. We avoid chemical treatments and feeding whenever possible. We only use wax foundation or foundation-less frames. $195/nuc. $50 deposit.

Our bee stock comes from feral bees, removals/cut outs, swarms and trading. All stock is tested for a minimum of two years before being entered into the breeding program and sold. Genetic lines that perform poorly are culled out during the testing phase. Read more about our operation at our website.
