Our nucs are splits (also called divides or increase) made from established colonies. Four combs from an existing colony are removed from the original hive and one frame of foundation are placed in a cardboard nuc box with a lid for transport, and the queen is from that hive and is a proven layer. The nuc will build up quickly if fed, and is less vulnerable to starving, absconding, or robbing than a package.
This is one of the Queens I raised last year.
A little fact about Pollen: Worker bees can carry 16mg (8mg x 2 pollen baskets on their legs)
Can you find the QUEEN?
