Hive World supplies either traditional wooden nuc boxes (in a kitset or ready to go package) or EPS Paradise Nucs for housing your swarms and splits. Why would you use a Nuc as opposed to a regular hive?

  • Because there is not so much room in a nuc, the colony is more focussed on their work.
  • The bees can keep the nuc warm with less effort due to the smaller area.
  • A warmer nuc means the queen will lay more brood quicker.  You will therefore get a strong ready-to-go hive sooner.
Once all the frames are combed and the weather has warmed up, you can then move them into a regular hive to multiply freely.
