This nuc offers a number of advantages...
Does not include a 10 frame telescoping outer cover (which is required). A 10 frame outer cover such as a galvanized telescoping top cover or the BeeMax Insulated Cover can be utilized. Does not include frames, or foundation.
I have been buying boxes -deeps and mediums- for over 30 years and the quality of this pine stands with the very best that bbyou can get today and reminds me of the quality in workmanship and material we saw before the construction boom early in the century. Perfect bee has the very best deal on this product than any other company online. Out of 4 bottom boards, 4 divided deeps, 4, 4 frame Deep Supers, and the covers for all 4 I had exactly 0 (zero) knots in any of the wood, it is all perfectly clear. The company is quick to answer any questions, even the ones most companies won’t or don’t want to answer. You can’t go wrong with Perfect Bee.
My other hobby is being a woodworker. The quality of this pine is top-notch, I have no knots in my batch! I have not assembled to check the craftsmanship but I don't have any doubts. Likely buying a couple more.
Well-milled pieces and included hardware made the assembly a snap.
After assembly the individual parts seemlessly sit on the divided bottom board which I expect from Perfectbee/Betterbee.
I see some comments about no entrance reducers but the entrances are small and just need some hardware cloth for mice in the fall.
No top cover included but still a good deal considering the quality.
God quality hives. Fast shipping! I will be coming back here.
Only thing it was partly damaged in route due to poor packing and handling but everything was replaced with no problem.
These nuc boxes are very well made! Hardware was included which was nice. Shipping was quick and customer service was amazing. I definitely recommend these boxes and this company!
