* Three frame overwintered nucs are survivor starter colonies that have been wintered and fed through the off-season, and have successfully survived into the New Year with no mite treatments.  Consisting of three frames in February, overwintered nucs include a proven VSH-Italian queen bred during the mid-summer of the previous year.  These starter colonies are well established, and are ready to build up rapidly for the new season.
