Where can I get Carniolan bee nuc's for the spring?

Post by jae »


I am wanting to become a beekeeper and would like to know where I can get 2 nuc's of Carniolans for the spring. You folks with Carniolan bees where did you get yours? I've called different places and they won't send them. I'm in Randleman. Not far from Wally. I would also like to buy some used items needed to bee keeping as buying everthing new at once on a fixed income is difficult. Thanks! :?:

Carniolans are a good choice.
You are correct that no one sells carny nucs around here or will likely ship.
The best way is to simply purchase an Italian nuc and then re-queen with an Carniolan Queen. 6 weeks later most of the bees will be Carnies.

best of luck,
