Lots of Commercial hives.......
I'd be interested to hear from anyone that plans on selling nucs on 14 x 12 frames early next season.

I'm based in south Cheshire but can travel a reasonable distance.

Please feel free to get in touch.

Thanks

hi there....i am running a number of dartington hives on 14x 12 frames...the dartington was the forerunner of the beehaus.....my orignal stock was from robin dartington himself and i have added cecropia bee strains to them by importing queens (see brother adam or beeartisan.com). dureing the year i have split our 8 nucs useing the dartington superseed technique and imported some queens again....if i dont need all these nucs i am happy to move them on.....i have them in my own 6frame dartington boxes..

regards

Hi Big and Stubee,

out of interest, what prices would your nucs be going for?

I am looking at my options for next year and budgeting for setting up a couple of hives on 14 x 12's.

gday thebhoy.

have not considered at all what price they should go for ...........beware my strains are strong and may well overfill a nat 14 x 12 on 1 or 1.5 brood boxes you will need to double the brrod box.

I'd be interested in a nuc in the spring.
I'd had a new Dartington hive that I am going to put together over the winter.

..........if my single hive which is small, as it swarmed in first week of september, survives the winter and my may/june holiday, i would like to obtain a summer 14x12 nuc.

hi chris.

yes get in touch later next year and we will see what we can do. i have a cople of nucs over wintering which are F1 hybrid cecropia/buckfast (and others) strain these will produce large colonies suitable for the dartington hives. we have a local joiner who makes our local dartingtons group hives !!
