    Default Pricing a 5-frame nuc

    Any suggestions on pricing a 5-frame nuc with a newly hatched laying queen? I caught my own swarm a few weeks ago, put it in a 5-frame nuc and fed 1:1. I already have 5 hives and would rather sell it. I'd prefer to sell just the frames and not the box etc.

    if you caught your own swarm and put it in this nuc then isnt it the original queen? if so, you can market it as "proven overwintered". newbies eat that up! $180 w/o box, but there may not be a market for much longer being this late int he season...

    I had a double swarm that day. The larger group of bees stayed with the virgin queen (from an overwintered hive). I mark my queens so I know it wasn't the original. Our local club usually has members looking for nucs.
