Introducing A Mated Queen To A Nuc Of Honey Bees In St. Augustine

by in Queens April 7, 2020

Long Live The Queens!

We introduced a mated queen to a nuc at our Nursery apiary. This nuc was a mix of a weak split from our St. Augustine South apiary and a weak swarm that we caught at our St. Augustine Shores apiary. We added a frame of capped brood along with the caged queen and the new honey bee queen should start laying eggs in the next 10-15 days after she is released from her cage. The new Bee Augustine Honey Co. colony should be on its way to producing local honey from St. Augustine in no time.
