    Default Whole Sale Price for Brood Frames

    I am looking to purchase frames of capped brood to make up a few NUCs and was wondering what a fair price is - obviously it depends on how well filled out the frames are, but ball park? $20? $25? $30? $40? per frame? Thoughs?

    Wholesale or for a few nucs? If wholesale you can expect $25/frame, perhaps a little less if you buy enough. If only for a few nucs, you probably cannot find anyone willing to sell them, so expect to pay more.

    Check your state bee laws about buying drawn comb. Then find out how much a nuc sells for in your area. Around here, a five frame nuc has three frames of brood, a frame of honey and foundation the bees are drawing out. Since the foundation and the honey are not worth a whole lot, most of the price of a nuc would be the queen and the brood frames. I would expect $40 per deep frame.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    I presume you want the nurse bees to cover them......I wouldn't sell mine for less than $40.
