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.
