I am interested in having someone assist me with beekeeping. I have about 10 hives and have been a beekeeper for 11 years. I am now older, retired, and looking for a person to help out during the week. I live in Lake Forest. I will of course pay for the help. All of my profits go to Lake Forest Hospital for breast cancer patients.

Hello Fellow Beekeepers! I hope you all had the opportunity to order all of the packages and nucs you needed through our club. However, if you find that you just need more bees (don’t we all!), I’d like to help you out. I’m excited to share that I’m selling nucs. BS Bees is pleased to announce we are taking orders for a limited number of L.B. Werks nucs this spring. Price is $160 each.
Description: Each nuc of Pol-Line bees consists of 4 standard deep frames with an in-hive feeder. The transfer box is yours to keep. Arrival of nucs (from Texas) is weather dependent typically the last week of April or the first week of May.
Why choose a Nuc?
-Easy way to replace losses
-Build up better up than packages
-Great for beginner beekeepers: pre-established colony that is easy to transport and install
Pick Up Location: You will be notified by email or text ahead of the arrival date. The nucs will need to be picked up on the given date/time in Burlington, Wisconsin. We will provide the address upon confirmation.
Order/Payment: Cash, PayPal, Venmo, or Money Orders are accepted. Orders are confirmed once payment is received.
