If you’re interested in beekeeping or expanding your apiary, you’ve come to the right place. At Lappe’s Bee Supply, we offer a wide selection of high-quality honey bees for sale, including nucs, queen packages, and more. In this article, we will provide you with valuable information about our products and how they can benefit your beekeeping endeavors.
Lappe’s Nucs: A Strong Foundation for Your Hive
One of our flagship products is Lappe’s Nucs. A nuc, short for nucleus colony, is a small, well-established honey bee colony consisting of a queen, worker bees, and brood frames. Lappe’s Nucs provide a strong and healthy foundation for your hive, making them an excellent choice for both beginner and experienced beekeepers.
When you purchase Lappe’s Nucs, you can expect:
- Quality Queens: Our nucs come with high-quality, mated queens known for their excellent genetics and performance. These queens are carefully selected to ensure strong colony growth and productivity.
- Disease-Free Colonies: We take pride in maintaining healthy colonies. Our nucs are inspected and certified disease-free, giving you peace of mind and reducing the risk of introducing diseases to your existing hives.
- Established Bee Population: Each nuc contains a thriving population of worker bees and brood frames. This means your new hive will have a head start, as the bees are already building comb, collecting nectar, and rearing brood.
Queen Packages: Introduce Genetics to Your Hive
In addition to Lappe’s Nucs, we also offer Queen Packages. These packages consist of a mated queen bee and several attendant worker bees. Queen Packages are an ideal option if you want to introduce new genetics to your hive or requeen an underperforming colony.
Here’s what you can expect from our Queen Packages:
- Quality Queens: Our queen bees are bred from reputable genetic stock, ensuring desirable traits such as productivity, gentleness, and disease resistance. They are bred to be excellent producers and leaders within the colony.
- Careful Transportation: We take great care in packaging and shipping our Queen Packages. The queens are properly caged and accompanied by attendant bees to ensure their safety during transit.
- Easy Integration: When you receive your Queen Package, you can introduce the queen to your existing hive by following proper beekeeping techniques. This process allows for the gradual acceptance and integration of the new queen into the colony.
