Indiana Hive Products & WLBA Nucs
This is where you will find honey for sale, bees for sale, and swarm removal services from WLBA members. Buy from local beekeepers who work to nurture local bee populations!
A nuc or nucleus hive is a small hive complete with bees, a queen, and drawn frames. Each nuc is already established as a colony, as opposed to a package with only bees and an unrelated queen.
Many WLBA members will sell nucs once they have determined how their bees has overwintered. Since these bees are LOCAL, the nucs may not be purchased before April or May.
