About this deal

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. I've had to do an "emergency" extract of brood frames in the spring when the bees had packed the broodnest i.

The pent roof makes the unit blend into the garden while giving you full headroom throughout the complete shed. Two 14 x 12 frames full of brood is nearly equivalent to three nationals or when I make up splits I take three 14 x 12 frames of brood which gives you a really strong start to your new colony.The treatment is highly effective in keeping the structure strong, but will need topping up over time to keep the wood in optimum condition.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The benefits of the shed being fully pressure-treated means it is protected against decay, rot, and pest damage for years.Only once we are completely happy that the bees are ready to be hived and that the weather is suitable will we start to let them go out. Also having just moved some double brood colonies I can't deny that they're pretty heavy, even in polystyrene. I have tried to force the colony to work upstairs straight away by putting the queen on foundation only above the excluder.

The cladding on this shed is Pressure Treated (Tanalised) 16mm (planed to to a 12mm finish) specially designed rebated shiplap. Additionally, we offer top-tier F1 Buckfast Queens and F1 Carniolan Queens, reflecting our unwavering commitment to breeding excellence. 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. Please note - All of our products must be installed on a level solid base, the usual but not limited to methods are either concrete, paving slabs (flags), a wooden frame.Like many other newbeeks who started out on standard nationals (and WBC in my case) this year, I'm definitely moving to 14x12 next. 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. Then you need to make sure any extractor can take that size of frame, they will cost a bit more, but there are some advantages.
