Hi

You can probabaly get them at Stoneleigh for that price minus postage.

However unless you are planning on rearing hundreds, stick with 5 framers as they leave you with far more options.

Cheapest I've seen is here:

http://freespace.virgin.net/bee.equipped/pages/apidea.htm

At ?13.50 I dont think thats too bad at all, mind you as has been mentioned I think you might get them cheaper at Stoneleigh. And with Apideas you can remove the feeder part and replace it with two extra frames...they even do supers(feeders) for them now too. I've always been pleased with the ones I've got and used in the past.

Hi I have previously contacted the sellers of the mini nuc at ?13.50 That is their old website and prices are a bit more now though not on their new site.

I also tried to buy off this site last year and was told the website was years old and prices were significantly higher.
The site owner should take it down or update prices.

what a dreadful site. Orange text on a brown background and tiny font size? Sheesh they are not catering for their market are they? IE not many have 20/20 vision who are beekeeping. *grins*

When it comes to mating nucs I prefer my ones. I must get the camera out and post some pics here.
