Honey Bee Nucs and Hives for Sale: Discounts Available - $130 (Blacksburg, VA)

I am down-sizing my apiary and have one, two and three box hives and five-frame nucs for sale. All the boxes are eight-frame, medium boxes. These are strong, functioning hives with bees, queen, brood, honey and pollen. They are for pickup only in Blacksburg.

My bees are inspected each year by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The last inspection was done in April 2014.

In the past six years, I have purchased queens exclusively from some the best lines in the country; New World Carniolan, Purvis Brothers, Dr. Joe Latshaw's Aurea and Karnica, Honey Bee Genetics, Glenn Apiaries' VSH and Pol-line, Minnesota Hygienic, Harbo Bee Co. and VP Spartan lines. Google any of those lines to learn more. The queens in the hives will have genes from one or more of these lines.

The boxes and bottom boards are in good condition and painted with Lowe's best exterior latex paint (Duramax). The hives will come with an unpainted, plywood top. If you want to use a traditional, telescoping top and inner cover, you can purchase them from a bee supply firm.

Eight-frame, all-medium box hives are the trend in hobby beekeeping. These boxes are much lighter to lift and are a back saver. One-size, medium frames also makes hive management much easier as all frames are interchangeable throughout the hive.

Prices:
Nuc with five medium-frames in a waxed cardboard box $130.00
One box, eight-frame, medium hive $190.00
Two box, eight-frame, medium hive $250.00
Three box, eight-frame, medium hive $310.00

Price Discounts:
5% discount if your purchase is $400.00 to $699.00
10% discount if your purchase is $700.00 or more.
