6 Frame Nuc Box
This 6 Frame Nuc Box, made by Lyson, holds 6 deep frames and includes an entrance reducer and propolis trap as an inner cover.
Made of sturdy high density polystyrene.
The frame rests are reinforced with plastic. Both the bottom board and outer cover are ventilated. The outer cover has multiple close-able vents to allow plenty of ventilation in any season. A propolis trap is used as an inner cover to prevent bees from building comb in the outer cover. Included metal latches hold the cover in place.
The entrance can be set to queen excluder mode, fully closed for transport (flip over), or wide open (remove sliding plastic piece).
Please Note: Frames are not included. Assembly instructions are located here.
I have not assembled the boxes but all looks good and strong built. What I like it you can put a second box on top of the main box. I have some other styrofoam nucs that you cannot do this with. Assembly will be a project over the winter getting ready for next season.
Well made, I glued joints and used provided screws, now like a rock. I mean solid. The extra frame is needed for splits, I like the 6 frame idea.
