There are obvious advantages of purchasing nucs over packaged
bees. The largest advantage is that a nuc has an accepted, laying
queen. (Unless queen is specified to be separate). With a package of bees, the
development of new bees is delayed until the queen is accepted. Then you must wait 21
days for her eggs to develop for the first “new” wave of bees over what was in the
original package. Therefore a nuc has a lead time of about one month over a package of
