A revolutionary Langstroth nucleus in high density polystyrene. It is revolutionary in terms of price, features and performance. Unlike virtually all other nucleus boxes available this one is built like a proper hive with a separate floor with varroa mesh, hive body and roof all interlocking for security and strength. Designed to take 6 frames the design features a hard plastic ledge for the frames to sit in which will ensure a long life and prevent damage when propolis is scraped off.
A very valuable design feature is the ability to split the hive into two 3 frame nucleus hives through the use of a central division board (purchased separately) and the two entrances (included), one at each end of the floor. In normal use one entrance is closed off with a plastic entrance reducer and the other reduced in height. The entrance reducers are ncluded wih the nuc.
The pictures on the left show various aspects of the hive, in 6 frame and 3 + 3 configuration (less division board)
There is a generous amount of space under the frames and we suggest this would be the ideal place for fondant if you are not using a frame feeder. Simply lift up the hive body or remove a frame and place a bit of fondant on the floor.
As with our hives the roof is reversible so when fitted with a cut down propolis screen the nuc will be perfectly prepared for transport with no danger of the bees overheating because of ventilation through the varroa floor and propolis screen.
