Get Ready to Make Nucs!

With Spring just around the corner now is the time to make up some extra nuc boxes for splits and swarms. You can never have enough nuc boxes when the bees start to multiply!

Nucs can be made of most any material including plastic sign boards.  With elections over check with some of your local candidates and get their larger signs to re-purpose.  Tell them the contribution will help save the bees. Much better than going into the trash.

My friend Frank Lindsay from New Zealand does not claim to be the inventor but he does a nice job explaining how to use plastic sign boards to make nucs.  Convert mm to inches and let’s get busy.   See details on pages 6 – 8 of the Wellington beekeepers newsletter Jan 2016.  Plan for Plastic Sign Board Nucs
