Out of Stock for the year! Currently available the week of April 28, 2024. Limited supply of overwintered treatment free double nucleus hive with their majesty who was chosen out of our apiary for her survival, hygienic, temperament, and egg laying traits. These nucleus colonies have survived their first winter, so they are proven to be acclimated to a CO winter. Colony (ten deep frames) will be ready to transfer into standard Langstroth deep eight or ten frame hive bodies. Fifty dollars will be refunded if nucleus boxes are returned, or instantly have it refunded by bringing your own equipment to transfer colony into at time of pick up. If you choose this option, this will need to happen at sunrise or sunset on scheduled pick-up date. Local PICK-UP only. Email will be sent to work out final details and exact pick-up day, as well as location in the Spring of 2024.

I was one of the lucky people who purchased a double nucleus. I am so happy with this purchase. It was pure luck or divine intervention that lead me to Mr. Fields’ website. I read everything. Then I emailed, called, and made the decision to purchase. I was really excited when April 22, my pickup date, arrived. If my bees swarmed and left tomorrow, my experience was so good and Mr. Fields is so knowledgeable, that I would go right back to him and start the process over in hopes of learning from my mistakes. Mr. Fields is well known in the bee community throughout Colorado. He provides lectures and classes to beekeeping clubs. I really did get lucky. I not only got bees in a box, I also got an expert who answers my questions knowledgeably, honestly, and as it relates to my bees as he knows this hive. Excellent purchase! P. Heidel
Thank you for the kind words Patricia. If there is anything else I can do to help you on your endeavor, just send me a text;) Keep me posted on your colonies progress, and I imagine you will be adding more space sooner than later to prevent them from swarming;)

I bought two overwintered nucs from Lazarus this spring. These are by far the best colonoies I have ever had. The queens are beautiful. The brood pattern is amazing. To make it even better, they are very calm no smoke necessary.
Thanks Melissa, keep me posted on their progress & if I can help in any way.
