    Default Packaging Nucs For Pickup

    Just a quick question to those that sell nucs.
    When packaging nucs for sale, how long can you box up the bees before they are picked up? As our business grows sometimes we have more than we can box in one day. If you keep them cool can they stay boxed 2 to 3 days? Thanks for your comments!

    I have them come first thing in the morning or at evening. And then seal them up.

    I would rarely recommend "sealing up" a hive. Haul them with an open entrance preferably at night. If you must haul during daylight hours, either cover them with a net or screened entrances with a screened but shaded lid.
