The Nuc (short for nucleus colony) Box, is ideal for raising a split, or capturing a swarm.  Our five full depth frame Nuc Boxes (frames not included, but we sell wood frames and foundation or plastic frames, waxed or unwaxed)--or use four frames and a single division feeder--are solid construction with a hive mat (crown board, inner cover, ceiling) and closed corner telescoping galvanised lid (roof, top, cap).

We manufacture two types of Nuc Box, the solid wood floor, and the mesh floor style.  The solid wood floor nuc is our bread-and-butter, having been in the market for many years and is a market leader.  It is snug and warm and will winter a small nucleus colony well over the winter.  The metal entrance disc is our own manufacture and a great tool for bee access control.  It has the “full open” setting, the “queen excluder” setting (allowing just the worker bees to exit and enter, preventing the queen from absconding), and the “ventilation” setting, keeping all the bees inside to ensure a swarm settles in, or ready for secure transport.

The Nuc Box is sold untreated, but you are welcome to treat to ensure a long life for this great apiary management tool.  We sell copper naphthenate and paraffin wax.
