    Default Frames of brood, price of ?

    I have had a request from someone to purchase frames of brood from me. I have never sold nor bought frames of brood.

    How should I price them?

    Has anyone ever purchased frames of brood?

    Good evening Larry,
    I have sold frames of brood with and without frame exchange.
    Be careful about the frame exchange unless you know the quality.
    I sell nucs without frame exchange so that I do not get poor quality frames.
    If the frames are used for almond pollination I would go top price.
    Regards,
    Ernie

    5 frame nuc goes for about 60 to 90 bucks depending on where you live. That usually is 3 to 4 frames of brood and 1 to 2 frames of honey/pollen depending on how the nuc is set up. So you can do the math off of that. Don't sell yourself short on brood, they will set back your hives.
