Newly reformulated plastic in late 2019.
Drain holes in the bottom lets moisture out. Stops on the frame rest and retainers in the lid, keep frames in place and prevents them from sliding and banging into each other. Two feeding options on the lid: 1) use standard soda bottle. 2) built in detail for hive-top feeding. Provides plenty of ventilation for full nucs.
Holds 5 deep frames. Measures 23" x 12" x 12".

It arrived safe and sound. I deployed them out to reduce down some of my weaker hives late in the season. Eager to see how the bees take to them the rest of the season.
Great Idea, now a 2 frame box would be cool. I like very much!
I ordered 3 of these NUC boxes to use as swarm boxes. I like the fact they are made of plastic so they can be reused each year (instead of being made out of cardboard). They are easy to use and assemble. At first, when I received them, I wanted to make sure I was putting all the pieces together correctly so I looked up a youtube video to find out how to do that. I didn't find one. The company that manufactures them has a video talking about the product, but it already shows the product put together. So I made a youtube video to help others ensure they are putting them together correctly and also to give some other helpful tips about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEkUtm70rXg&t=346s
Overall, it is a great product. I already have caught one swarm and those bees quickly made this NUC box their home.
If you are looking for an alternative to the hard to assemble traditional “jester” nucs and something to transport your bees and keep a bit longer the pro-nuc is the answer. Also a great solution for a swarm box to keeep on hand during swarm season. We purchased 5 to test them and are pleased with quality and plan to purchase a larger quantity.
