At Old Sol we focus on quality over quantity, and take extra time at every step of the way to assure ample, productive, well-vetted queens that will supply your apiary with excellent genetics and prosperous colonies.

2023 Prices & Availability

Old Sol SuperNucs come ready to grow in a wooden 8 frame medium with 6 frames, all stages of brood, food, a fully vetted, marked queen, and a one gallon frame feeder. The advantage of having more frames to work with will transform the sustainability and profitability of your apiary.  Lighter weight individual hive components mean better ergonomics, which makes beekeeping more accessible, safer, and fun.

Efficiency: Three mediums is volumetrically equivalent to a double deep, however it is composed of 33% more frames of bees! This means more bees to work with for increase or sale. More bees makes beekeeping more sustainable and profitable.

Ergonomics: A full 8 frame honey super will usually only weigh between 20-40 pounds. This is much easier on beekeepers' backs. This means beekeeping is more accessible to more people.

* Availability: We can offer SuperNucs from mid April, all the way to late summer.
