  1. Hi all, Just brought 4 Nucs @ $200 each off trademe see ad below. The trade was for one and I was offered more so I took 4 thinking I was buying the same thing. I would like some feedback to what the members feel after viewing the images I took after checking the Nuc boxes before I . Trademe ad: This auction is for one Nuc beehive with virgin queen recently added. Pick up either from Auckland or Auckland.Each Nuc will need to be transferred to your box or for $15 I it can come with a new 5 frame corflute box. 5 full depth frames. Mix of new wooden wax and plastic frames Each 2-3 frames brood with honey and pollen stores. This auction comes with caged virgin queen or a recently added queen. So should mate and lay in approx 3 weeks. Nucs will have there Varroa treatment completed. Email to seller: Hi $%^&, Reading your last email I had a look before I moved frames into my hives and see there were a few frames short. Box 1 4 frames Box 2 4 frames Box 3 5 frames Box 4 3 frames Regards, Me Response from seller: Hi Not all boxes had 5 frames as I was working going on the basis I would be managing the hives. To explain. When I make a split I start with 3-4 frames, then add more brood and food as required. Your bought 4 virgin nucs...I gave you 3 mated queens as I want to ensure success and demonstrate my commitment to a long term partnership. Let's put 00 hives athe Catter. We can work these together so you learn and I get additional apiary space. As for more hives beyond this is old charge a management fee of $000 a year per hive including all feed and Varroa treatments etc. Payable quarterly. $ What do you make of this?
