Wildcat Nuc colony

Watch out for our Wildcats!

Mite-biting behavior intentionally bred into these bees representing the offspring of Purdue inseminated mite-biting queens and those survival stock here in Kentucky and Ohio. Our Wildcats are full 5-frame nucs with laying queen, capped brood, and honey stores.




More Info

Nucs must be picked up at the Honey Depot, unless you choose the Delivery and Install Option. We do not ship honey bee nucs!!

Reserve your order now — NUCS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN MID TO LATE APRIL DEPENDING ON THE SPRING WEATHER CONDITIONS IN KENTUCKY. ALL correspondence is via direct email to customers and general postings on our Facebook page. We will schedule a 3-day period to pickup nucs, afterwards a fee of $10 per day will be charged to allow for time and effort to feed and care for the bees.

I’m a beginner with 2 hives — I bought 1 intermediate hive and my 2 nuc colonies from them. They have been so great every step of the way. High quality products!!! …I highly recommend them for all your beekeeping needs and local bee products.

Very knowledgeable people. Their prices are very reasonable and I enjoy taking beekeeping with them. Thank you for opening up and being so close to town. Keep up the great work.

This is an awesome place with all the supplies you need for your bees! They also sell honey and unique gifts. Joel and his staff are super friendly and helpful, and they also offer several affordable classes (beginner and intermediate) to help you along the way.
