Questions about NUC's

Post by DuaneB » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:15 pm

Hi everyone,

Who might still have some for sale? OR where is a good place to get them from. By good, I mean NUC's healthy, active queens - a reputable place?

What size are they typically? 4 or 5 frames? Medium or Deep in size? Seem you have to GO to the place and get them yourself. Do they came in a 'box'; or do you have to provide one to carry them in?

Thanks,
Duane

Thank you!

Are NUC's usually Medium or Deep in size? Or does it just depend on the supplier?

Thanks,

They are normally deeps, but can be made up as mediums by request. Beez Needz plans to make a few mediums within the next few weeks.
