Deep Over Wintered 2018 Nuc
Dvash nucs are sold in Deep and Medium configurations. These nucs are built from hives that have survived the previous winter and are emerging strong. The new queen in the nuc may or may not be marked. She is evaluated for laying patterns and strong sealed brood patterns before being sold. They have an excellent Varroa mite tolerance when managed decisively and effectively. These healthy bees are quick to build up in the spring, they are great honey producers, and they overwinter well. Nucs are for pick up only from our location in Findlay Ohio. They will be available starting in mid to late May.
All Dvash nucs Come with 5 frames and have a mixture of worker bees, nurse bees, drones, and a strong 2019 laying queen bee. Brood in all stages from that queen; pollen and honey. Nucs will be in a reusable 5 frame plastic corrugated nuc box. We cannot allow anyone to transfer the frames from their nuc boxes into their own equipment while they are here. Doing so would cause you to leave behind a portion of your bees with us, it's better if you take them to where you will be keeping them and transfer them there, so they can find their way back in with the queen. Please be aware that you will need to place your frames of bees from the nuc into a regular hive body shortly after picking up from us. These frames will be full of bees and could potentially end up swarming if not given the extra room that a regular hive offers them..
Return & Refund Policy
A $65 nonrefundable deposit is required at the time the order is placed, the remaining balance is due when the order is picked up via cash, money order or certified bank check only. Each customer is responsible for picking up their bees at the time specified, or for making arrangements for an alternative pick up date and time. Dvash Bee Co. will not give refunds to anyone who does not pick up their nucs without any attempt made to notify Dvash Bee Co. of cancellation, and we may offer your nuc(s) to the next person on the waiting list. In the event Dvash Bee Co is unable to fulfill the order no later then June 7th, the customer is given the opportunity for a full refund if they wish to longer wait at the customer's request.
Product Delivery Method
All orders placed will receive an email as soon as we know when the nucs will be ready with additional pick up details. We will work with you on whichever pick up day works for you, regular pick up days are Saturday and Sunday; if a particular weekend or weekday works better for you, then we will do our best to accommodate depending on weather and current work schedules at Dvash Bee Co. The price that is shown above already has sales tax added into it, so the price you see is the end price you will get charged!
Honey Bee Nucs are for pick up only, so although you will get a quote during check out regarding free shipping, we will not ship nucs due to the tremendous and unacceptable amount of stress that it adds to the bees.
Terms And Conditions
When you order honey bee nucs from Dvash Bee Co. online, by phone, by email, in person, or by mail, you agree to the following policies, contract terms, conditions, limitations, and exceptions.
Nucs and the risk of loss of the bees and the queen inside becomes the responsibility of the customer at the time of pick up. Dvash Bee Co. guarantees that all nucs will be healthy and full of bees upon customer pickup. All Customers are allowed and encourage to inspect each nuc(s) at the time of pick up. Failure to check the nuc forfeits any claims of nuc quality or queen viability prior to customers taking possession of the nuc; however, because of different apicultural techniques, we can not guarantee the survival or productivity of the hive that you may establish from the nuc. By placing the order with Dvash Bee Co., each customer agrees that they have read through these terms & conditions, and they will not attempt to hold Dvash Bee Co. responsible for whatever may happen to your nuc after it has been picked up by the customer.
