Overwintered nucleus colonies are an excellent method to minimize their dependence on package bees. The colony overwinters in 8 frames in a 4 frame / 4 frame configuration.
This nuc offers a number of advantages...
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!
Good purchase with fast delivery. Would have been perfect if they would throw in the entrance reducers.
