The EC has voted to provide 350 packages and 55 nucs in 2017. That is a substantial expansion over 2016 which was 270 packages and 30 nucs. These will be sold on a first come / first served basis to members and non-members. Our treasury will make $5 per on member orders and another $10 on non-member orders. Packages shall be $125, Italian or Carniolan ($135 for non-members) Nucs shall be $177, Italian or Carniolan ($187 for non-members) Packages will have standard Koehnen queens from a California breeder. Nucs will be 5 frames as usual. Are they Colorado bees? Answer: kind of. Nucs will be splits from a Colorado outfit. Queens will be grafted from the preferred Colorado queens. These will be open mated in California, so the drones will potentially be California bees. Figure on having a mixture of Colorado and California genes. Nucs will have been treated with oxalic acid prior to delivery. You must factor this into your chosen treatment schedule. Delivery location (Thank you, Kevin Kerst): Fresno Valves & Casting, Inc 4245 Industrial Parkway Evans, CO 80620 Includes full pull through driveway for an 18-wheeler, adequate parking, covered garage bay, and enough room for members to drive through the parking area while picking up bees. Volunteers will bring your bees to your car. You don’t even need to get out. Street parking is eliminated.
