2017 Spring-Made Starter Colony

from 195.00

Available early July 2017
These hives are made in the spring from over-wintered genetics, but have yet to experience a Minnesota winter. 

These hives are good for a midseason re-Queen/boost to a failing hive OR  keep them as a nucleus colony and overwinter them. The following spring, transfer them into a production hive- They will be ready to smash a honey crop.   You will likely get surplus honey to extract for yourselves that following year (weather dependent). 

Choose between the MN Metro Line or the MN Northern Line of genetics. The MN Northern Line withstands a winter that is on average 10 degrees colder and lasts considerably longer than winter in the Metro Area.
