Fits standard US Langstroth wood (or plastic) deep frames. Frames and Foundation are NOT included.
Used last year with the divider board and put queen cell frames from other hives. Added queen’s to other queenless hives. Also pulled divider board and overwintered a hive with just 6 frames in NE Ohio.
This is the best I have tried so far I have Lyson nuc to and the bee box blows it away i will be buying more of them. My bee's never beard in this polystyrene nuc like in my wooden boxes will see how they do through winter but I live in the s out and we don't have much of a winter. But I closed the entrances off and installed a up guardian entrance and so far i don't see no small hive beetles in it . Wish Blue sky offered free shipping on orders over 100 dollars but they where quick on the shipping though
Looks good ,ready to try it.
The hive best system for bees!! I use these for all my hives. Three brood boxes high (two more than 8 frame two less than 10 frame! Perfect for nucs, and queen mating nucs.
If you want to use the corrugated divider you will have to make some minor modifications
I use these for my main hives and make nucs with the divider board. I am 60 female and lifting 60 pound boxes are enough
Poly is a no brainer, take away the work the bees have to do for themselves and they will have more time to work for you!
