Nucleus hives, often called nucs, are a great way to build hive numbers quickly or get into beekeeping easily. Nucleus hives are essentially smaller versions of a full sized hive. They do require some time to build up to full capacity but have the advantage of being easier to transport and cheaper than full sized hives.
Our 4-frame nucleus hives consist of 2.5-3 frames of brood with the remaining frame(s) consisting of a mixture of honey, pollen and nectar. Nucleus hives have sufficient bees to sustain the brood and a queen that is either newly mated or overwintered depending on your requirements. All hives are supplied as 'frame only' and are 'full depth' in size unless otherwise agreed.
