Mini Mating Nuc
Model #: 940
The advantages of using mini mating nucs for your virgin queens are the small number of bees that are required to fill them. The problem with mini nucs is getting this small amount of bees to draw out the comb. We have solved this problem by allowing you to place a half box above a full size colony with ten mini frames of foundation. When the bees have drawn the comb, simply remove this half box and place on our custom designed screened bottom board with opposing entrances. Charge these mini nucs with nurse bees and move to your mating yard and add a virgin queen or a queen cell. Another feature of this box is being able to remove the center divider and convert this box to a full size five frame medium nuc if needed. Included is a half screened bottom board with closable entrances, half cover with feeder caps to hold your feeder jars, solid half cover for covering the colony below, 10 top bars, 1 divider, 1 half medium super, and 5 sheets of plastic foundation.
