Complete Double Nuc
Learn More : See our frames and foundation buyers guide.
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…
- Early spring availability of locally-adapted queens and nucs
- Overwintered nucs and queens are proven, having already survived winter.
- Offers resources in reserve, to expand or replace winter losses
- Divided Bottom Board
- Divided Deep or Medium Hive Body
- 2 x Four Frame Deep or Medium Supers
- 2 x Inner Covers
- Nail Kit
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.
Perfectbee fulfilled this order through a 3rd party, and they forgot to include the 2 covers. I was extremely impressed with how quickly Perfectbee responded, and the remaining parts arrived a few days later.
A few notes: the hives ship bare wood parts (not wax dipped, which I expected, since the listing didn't mention wax dipping) with nails, and they're not assembled (which I DIDN'T expect since the listing showed fully-assembled hives, not kits to build them). It's about 10 minutes to do that assembly yourself.
