8 Bar Nucs
Nucleus Hives are a important part of both beginning and advanced Beekeeping. If you get bees from
a local beekeeper like us you will need one or two of these for him to start your bees in. Once your bees are started well
in your nuc with a laying queen, this small hive design allows you to take it home from your beekeeper and
transfer the started bars into your larger hive.
Once your main hive is prospering, the second year
you can use your Nuc hive to make splits or in other words start new hives. Simply pull some brood bars with a queen,
a honey bar and bees from your main hive and put it in a Nuc and in a few weeks you will have a new hive of bees
started for free. Or you can catch a swarm or buy a package and put them in. This Nuc hive is ready for bees.
All our Nucs come with a observation window and are made entirely out of solid pine. Colors
are Blue, White, Green or unfinished wood ready for your own paint.

they DO NOT come with bees.Update: 5/20/15 This has been another great year! I will be on
