5-Frame Nuc - Strengthen Weak Hive Populations or Rear Additional Queens

5-Frame Nuc

5-Frame Nuc


A 5-frame nuc gives you the opportunity to create a stronger bee colony to help replenish weak hive population, rear additional queens, or be used for capturing swarms.



Nuc is short for "Nucleus Hive" and is just a smaller version of a hive body (deep). A 5-frame nuc is 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. Additionally, empty nuc boxes can also be used for capturing swarms. 5-frame nuc boxes are small and compact making transportation easy.
