Our British Nucleus Colonies

We sell a limited number of British bred Nucleus colonies each year. These are from british bred queens, proven to be able to survive the harsh winters and produce large amounts of honey. These are 4/5 Frame Nucs with brood in all stages and are of the highest quality. Excellent if you want to start beekeeping or add british genes to your stock. We can supply nucs on national frames or top bar nucs.

Why it matters

Our British bees are in trouble. Man has exploited the bees to the limit, and now we are seeing the consequences. Bee colonies around the world are dying out in huge number. Due to the importation of foreign bees into britain we now battle a host of diseases and the bees genetics are not up to fighting the british climate.

Bees have also been artificially enlarged, causing them to be more vulnerable to disease and weakened in general. All these unnatural factors have contributed to the decline of the bees.

How can we help?

Here at Jolie Bee Apiaries we are keen to protect our british strain of bees. We breed from mainly wild british stock, ensuring that our bees have the means to fight the challenges they face in our climate. We promote the ability for bees to regress to their natural size, allowing them to build their own comb. And we do not batter them with chemical treatments to try and ward of disease as many beekeepers sadly do. Our bees have the natural ability to fight varroa and disease themselves in a natural way as they would in the wild. Therefore all the products that come from our hive contain no nasty chemicals, ensuring that you recieve a pure, natural product.

 

Our delicious natural honey comes from the wonderful flowers of south cambridgeshire, our bees are cared for using natural traditional methods with no chemical treatments used. Our bees wax, propolis and pollen are all in their purest form, making them delicious and very healthy for you and your family
