*HIGH HEAT WARNING!*
This is the first year to pick up NUCs at our PA Branch and we would like it to be successful. In order for this to be accomplished, we need cooperation from those who are picking up. Please understand that the NUCs will be screened off the night before pick up and all the bees will be confined to their NUC. With temperatures ranging in the high 80's,they can easily cook themselves. We ask that if you intend to pick up, you come as early as possible to avoid the high afternoon heat.
When traveling with a NUC, remove the top to allow airflow into the NUC. DO NOT STOP FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. If you must stop, provide a steady flow of air for the NUC. It is preferred to travel with NUC in the bed of a truck. THEY ARE NOT TO BE PLACED IN THE TRUNK OF A CAR.
Again, expected temperatures for Saturday May, 9th will be in the high 80's if not lower 90's.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday. Please feel free to call in, prior to Saturday, and place merchandise orders for pick up if you wish to avoid delays in the store. Merchandise must be purchased and loaded before obtaining NUC.
NUC pick up will be from 9:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m.
We will have a live NUC installation demonstration at 11:00 for those that are interested.
Those who are driving long distance and looking for lodging, we have spoken with our local Holiday Inn for discounted rate. Please reference Brushy Mountain Bee Farm when booking your room. Here is the contact information:
