Your nuc will be packed in a reusable box for transport and can be picked up in Hamilton. We will send you a reminder email or phone call prior to your pickup date with all the details about when, where, and how to safely pick up your bees. Let us know how the nuc is coming along. You should have a good idea in 2-3 weeks after install.
When ordering make sure you leave your phone number.
Bees are living things, what is called in the farming industry - "livestock." They require care and cannot be left on their own. There will be absolutely no refunds on the nucs once an order is placed.
If you need to reschedule a pick-up time/date, we require one full weeks notice.
