Equipment you need to get started with your nuc

Your nuc comes in a temporary cardboard box. The bees need a permanent home. If you have equipment you can use them. To help our customers who are starting new, we supply following items, which is all you need except for a veil or jacket which you can buy online. We recommend a ventilated bee jacket with hood. This provides the best protection. You can use leather gloves but we have found that Nitrile gloves are easier to work with.

Equipment: $200 for the following kit. All Assembled and painted. These kits are available in deep (9-5/8") and medium (6-5/8") sizes. You must use the size that correspond to the nuc you are buying. If you are getting a nuc in a deep box, it will only fit a deep hive body.
