Do you get to keep the cardboard nuc?. That will come in handy for putting caught swarms in later.
I suppose, 40 or 50 bux...Or less... Other than the bees and bee parts, the hive parts are pretty cheap and you can re-use them.
I guess, like anything else, it depends on how bad you want it...I bought a boat once for 200.00 at an auction. I originally told my wife i wouldnt go over 50.00...But this lady just kept over bidding me and I just knew I wasnt going to lose this battle..I just gave the boat away after about 5 years of having it and you know what?.....I NEVER even put it in the water! :-\
