Langstroth Nucleus Box


Nucleus (or "nuc") boxes make catching and splits easier! Bring it along on your next swarm catching adventure or use as a temporary home for a split colony from a strong hive. This temporary hive can be used until the frames are full or close to full, then simply transfer the frames into an empty full sized hive. Keep it in your trunk or covered truck bed during peak season so you are ready to collect bees when a call comes in!

Available in deep or medium size. Medium nucleus boxes include two boxes rather than one.

Our deep or medium nucleus boxes for Langstroth hives are made from sustainable sugar pine and fit 5 frames. Frames are sold separately. You can purchase deep frames  here and medium frames here. Comes with a solid bottom board and roof.

Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.

Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.

All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
