Nuc is short for "Nucleus Hive" and is just a smaller version of a hive body (deep). A Ready-to-Go 5-Frame Nuc includes not only the woodenware, but also comes with 3 lbs. of bees installed so you can hit the ground running. Nucs are the standard size most beekeepers use because it provides you the best opportunities to create stronger bee colonies. A strong nuc can be used to help replenish weak hive populations or rear additional queens. 5-frame nuc boxes are small and compact making transportation easy.
