Nuc? Single Story? Package? So many choices - We can help you decide!
Package bees are an economical way to get started in beekeeping. Unlike nucs or complete hives, package bees do not come with frames containing brood or honey. Check out our Purchasing Guide Quiz to see what equipment you need to get started!
Packages are our recommended option if you are stocking a top bar hive, or already have used equipment that has drawn comb.
