This forum can be used to link members willing to create a nuc by splitting a strong hive in the spring, with members wanting a new colony.
Please indicate if you are willing to make a nuc or whether you want to obtain a nuc, and pair yourselves up. Posting contact phone numbers would be an ideal way of doing this.
It would likely be of benefit to the recipient, if they are new to beekeeping to be invited to observe the stages of creating a nuc and checking that it has a laying queen by the member creating it, prior to the nuc being handed over.
The club is not getting involved in the transaction between members on these nucs, but it is expected that the process will be a commercial transaction. You should note that the nucs obtained by the club from a commercial supplier in the Manawatu are costing $260 each this year, which includes the five frames, a basic corflute nuc box, plus delivery to a local pick-up point.
Please post any questions in the forum, or ask another member if you are not sure.
