Identical to the langstroth nucleus hive but built to take jumbo langstroth or dadant frames. please note: our 1. 8 kg entrance feeder does not fit these nuc boxes.

A set of instructions for the nuc box can be downloaded here.

Food for thought: a six frame jumbo langstroth nucleus hive has almost the same volume as a bs national brood chamber and given that in a polystyrene hive the queen can be expected to use all the frames, unlike in a wooden hive where the outer frames tend to be ignored because of temperature fluctuations the "effective" brood volume in this hive is probably greater than a bs national.
