About this deal

Spring nucs will have travel screens on them to keep them cooler in warmer weather when transporting. The colony will re-orientate to the new entrance and will concentrate their efforts in the 14 x 12 box. We work very closing with the NBU (National Bee Unit) and APHA (Animal and Plant Agency) to guarantee you disease free bees that are a pleasure to handle. The most common flaw is a slight blue tinge which is a natural colouration sometimes appearing during the drying process whilst some others may have a small knot in the underside of the frame bar.

Yes, put the 14 x 12 box on top of the National brood box (no queen excluder) and feed to encourage the bees to draw out the foundation. I did try them for a couple of years and decided against and prefer the management of 2 Nationals (or WBC's for that matter). I feel my bees over-winter better on a single brood and with OMFs, they have more space to retreat from any severe weather conditions than if a single standard brood only. Chose from our plain wood frames in White, Black or Grey or Brushed gun metals, blacks, silvers or whites. Easyshed, Station Road Industrial Estate, Station Road, Coleshill, Birmingham, B46 1HT, United Kingdom.Our new 6 frame nuc doubles up as a 2-way mating nuc, the feeder has also been designed to be suitable for liquid sugar and solid fondant.

Any timber has been cut, pierced, or drilled without a subsequent application of approved cut-end treatment. Made from Western Red Cedar, the 14"x12" brood body is bottom bee spaced and can accomodate 11 Hoffman frames. Before using your hive, we recommend using an insect friendly wood preserver and weather outside for a week prior to use. These bees are on 14x12 frames which are suitable for a standard 14x12 brood box or WBC 14x12 brood box. At BS Honey Bees Ltd, we're not just a supplier; we're your dedicated partner in beekeeping, offering the pinnacle of bee quality and service.This DOES make a difference to uptake as otherwise it will cool down overnight and won't be taken down so quickly. I found (and more importantly so did one of my colonies) the space on a single standard not enough for both the early year population explosion and storing food for over wintering.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The Optional Extra of fully pressure-treated V Lap timber is 16mm finished and being V Lap there is only a small V shape at the top of the cladding. We take great pride in our nuc production and we guaranteed you will not be disappointed with the bees. I'm wondering if life might be easier to switch from double brood to 14x12 because of the reduced work when inspecting and I'm not really completely convinced that my colonies really need the volume of a double brood box.
