Paradise Nuc & Mate Hive



Hive World are the suppliers of six frame Paradise Nuc & Mate Hive Bee Boxes.

  • This world renowned system provides your bees with the premium conditions for queen rearing.
  • Strong high density polystyrene (100kg/m3) ensures well insulated hives.  As a result, brood establishes earlier in the season than regular hives.
  • The lock-tight construction of the boxes makes for a sturdy product that will last for decades.  These boxes stack easily and thus are easy to transport.
  • A well ventilated design (including a mesh inlay on the base) keeps these hives healthy for your bees.
  •  The boxes should be painted on the outside and can be painted on the inside if required as bees seem to nibble at the polystyrene.
  • The Paradise Nuc & Mate hive is  an ingenious combination that allows you to start off two queens within the one box by using a division board.  Once established, the nuc easily enlarges for wintering over or stepping up to a full size hive.  They are provided with two entrances – the use of an entrance reducer can block off one thereby allowing the box to be used as a regular single nuc.
