*Pro Tip – Take a look at our round Guardian entrance to control Small Hive Beetles preventing them from getting into the hive. They are one of the biggest reasons to loose a nuc, which a very small and weak hive.
*Has your Nuc built up but not ready to move them into a larger box? If you don’t soon, they will swarm. Add another 5F box above this one to buy you some more time.
*If used during the summer, you can increase ventilation by placing a couple of shims the size of popsicle sticks on the front or back just under the lid. It allows a great deal of air flow without letting robbers get into the hive. Not too much though or Small Hive Beetles can squeeze though.
