Paynes 6 Frame Poly Nuc

The paynes 6 frame polystyrene Nucleus is an ideal hive for you to make splits or to use to catch a swarm.

FEATURES

LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE
Each nuc is made from a very high density material, 100g/litre - up to 4 times stronger than the poly used for packaging.    This gives the nucs great durability, able to withstand hive tools and the usual beehive inspections.    It's lightweight properties will mean it is easier to handle too - great for those bad backs!

SUPER INSULATED
Its insulation properties also makes it ideal for beehives as less bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing, helps improve overwintering successes and giving you an earlier spring buildup.

ALREADY BUILT
No faffing around with this nuc.   The base component is one piece moulded so there are no weak joints and very minimal assembly needed before you add your bees.   Just give your nuc a lick of paint and screw the entrance disc to the front (supplied), then you are ready to go!

EXPANDABLE
The poly nuc has a range of extra that are available separately, enabling you to convert the nuc into so much more!   add an additional extension box on top to give the queen more room to lay in.   Or, how about adding a queen excluder and a super so you can start collecting honey from it, without having to use a full size hive or moving them around.

WHAT YOU GET.......

This polystyrene Nucleus Hive will hold 6 BS brood frames, for National and WBC hives, and comes complete with a built in Feeder. It has an open mesh floor to help with varroa control and to help with ventilation during transit. Comes with 4 feet to keep the hive off the ground, wooden float for the feeder, a disc entrance for easier control of the entrance and a clear coverboard for easy viewing without completely opening up the hive.
 

Comes in a Light Green colour. (Does not include frames)

Paynes nuc

Received the nuc from Gwenyn really quickly no complaints there, but I've found the nuc leaks syrup through the poly wall,I had painted the outside but looks like it'll require a coat inside the feeder.
