   Tim 620-306-1522  or  Norbert 620-216-0202  or

(We raise six frame nucs).  For $150 you get a laying Queen and five frames of bees and brood.  If you want the sixth frame Tim will give you a price depending upon how much brood is on the frame.  If you don’t want it we use it for raising Queen’s.
Compare with anyone else on the market.  Our product is usually ready in early May; however, weather conditions could delay until later in May.  With us you get 20 per cent more bees and brood for a much faster start.  
Quantities are limited.
