    Designed and produced especially for Irish Bee Supplies, the multi-breeding nuc but also sold by Abelo.

    Clever frame design. If they're not connected at the bottom they might be a bit tricky to inspect.

    I've built 3-fold full-frame nucs as described by Cushman and now sold by Thorne's. Again, these can be 'unfolded' and used in a full size hive.

    Currently I prefer poly Kielers ... because they float. Raining again today and the bridge to my apiary is floating

    I like keilers they are cheaper and a bit more roomy than apideas
    I have about a dozen rainbow minis (one is lost) because they are cheap and do the job

    Thornes have a new one in stock that's a bit bigger and 23 for overwintering ?

    I have had 5 of these Bivo double mating nucs hanging about for a couple of years now. Finally going to use them. Apologies for the paint colours but it's what I had!
