I got two of these nucs this year and they have both done fantastic! One is now halfway done with filling a third deep and the other is almost done with the second. Very strong, healthy bees. I would absolutely recommend them and plan on getting more next spring!

Purchased a nuc last fall and the bees have absolutely thrived. Happy and hard working hey have expanded and grown to their 3rd box. The nuc and the shared knowledge were invaluable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my next purchase.
Thank you Marcus, it is always my pleasure to spread honey bee knowledge & genetics;). Ultimately though, beeks have to find the management strategy that best suits them! You have come a long way;)

I purchased a Nuc from Lazarus and they were the only bees to survive the winter. He has been extremely helpful and answers all the questions I have. Highly recommend for great honey, treatment free bees, or bee hive removal!
Thank you for the review and kind words Cameron! It has been really fun helping you through your beekeeping journey.
