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.
