Nuc or package pickup Tip #5 The queen can not be inspected in a package, but in a nuc . . .

The queen can not be inspected in a package, but when purchasing a nuc, she can. If still in the queen cage, you can ask to see her. If she has been released into the nuc, you can inspect the frames for brood and general health. Here's a type of plastic queen cage used in a queen bank, a hive in which queens are stored in cages before those cages are placed in nucs and packages.
