About this deal

Just insert the metal frame runners into the slots (provided) and give your hive a lick of paint and you are ready to go!

and to be honest the 14 x 12 box is usually big enough to take even the biggest colony and the most fecund of queens- by the time they have got to full size you have supers on anyway and they have the extra space they need . It might take a few days for the bees to get the message that we want the queen to lay in the 14 x 12's but after a week or so there should be eggs and small larvae in the 14 x 12 frames. 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.A tip would be to feed to help them draw out the foundation with a rapid feeder, miller feeder, contact feeder, frame feeder, what ever you like. There may be an additional carriage charge for some heavy and bulky items to Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and islands, Isle of Man and off-shore islands.

Like many other newbeeks who started out on standard nationals (and WBC in my case) this year, I'm definitely moving to 14x12 next. This means we can anchor the wood closer to help stop twisting with the shrinking and expanding of the timber cladding.The Shed can be installed (down to the discretion of the main fitter) however any warranty included with the product will become void. 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. We take great pride in our nuc production and we guaranteed you will not be disappointed with the bees. Also having just moved some double brood colonies I can't deny that they're pretty heavy, even in polystyrene.
