It’s official we are beekeepers! Our first nuc of honey bees are coming home today! After much research on the net, reading books, and completing our 8 week class on how to raise honey bees taught by a professional bee keeper it is time to bring them home. During our last class in early spring we were scheduled to pick up our first nuc. A nuc is a small box that holds five frames, with about 20,000 young bees, and their queen. We packed the car with our bee suits and made sure the trunk was empty as that is where we would place the bees to bring them home. After closing the trunk we climbed in the car and began our 1 hour jaunt to the beekeepers bee yard. If you are interested in being a beekeeper or just love to read about bees come along with us to pick up our bees.
