Deluxe Nuc Box Setup

The first step toward a sustainable apiary is the creation of nucleus colonies.  They can be used for management, increase, or as a backup against winter losses.

These nucs are a smaller version of our excellent, Amish-crafted hives from Forest Hill Woodworking in Pennsylvania.  The setup includes a screened bottom board with mite inspection board, entrance reducer, box-joined hive bodies, ventilating inner cover, and telescoping outer cover.  The outer cover is finished with durable white aluminum flashing you can write on with a pencil.  Notes about the hive's status will last through the weather until you choose to erase them.

Available in 5-frame deep size or 10 medium (frames and foundation not included.)
