Just looking at what people paid or sold nucs for in 2010.

Just keeping it simple, so no differentiation for imports, splits, swarms, packages etc.

Does it mean that both vendor and purchaser are potentially 'double voting' on the same nuc?

One vote on one value? What about those that have bought multiple nucs?

What about those of us that simply were 'free' because we didn't charge ourselves, but we did have acost - like buying the frames and foundation?

Boxes posted are bound to far more expensive than 'pick-up into you own container'.

Polls like this are always too simplistic and then complex or inappropriate conclusions are extracted from the data.

Yes, hence why I put "bought or sold"

Thats why I ticked the multi option button, i.e you can post several times if you for example got one give but then also bought one.

Use some comon sence! Hence why I said Simple.

Does depend on the state of the Nuc- 5 frames brood will go for more than 3 frames brood 2 stores.

I gave a donatation to the charity of the "sellers" choice as they did not want anything for the Nuc but I felt bad not giving anything so I asked which charity they would want me to give money to in their name.

Interesting results and thanks for the poll. We were selling at about £120 in 2010, equivalent to a full super of honey. No problem selling at that price.

tells you little this poll, location, demand, and most important time of year impact cost

4 ppl quote £200+ when TH's sold over 100 at this price - sorry the poll isnt telling us much

Probably about 5/6 at the moment
I voted as free, because they were, really. I only paid £20 which was more about time and expenses for my mentor to get them from his out apiary to my allotment.
