Description

Our new 6 frame nuc doubles up as a 2-way mating nuc, the feeder has also been designed to be suitable for liquid sugar and solid fondant.

The complete brood body comes with 11 Hoffman self spacing frames, premier wired foundation, dummy board, metal runners, nails and instructions. IMHO 14 x 12's are not a well thought out system when it comes to the practicality and management of bees. The cladding on this shed is Pressure Treated (Tanalised) 25mm (planed to to a 20mm finish) specially designed rebated shiplap.Each component is one piece moulded so there are no weak joints and very minimal assembly needed before you add your bees. Sometimes a product they’ve made will be functionally perfect but have a small cosmetic fault and they have been putting these to one side.

Spring nucs will have travel screens on them to keep them cooler in warmer weather when transporting. A fecund queen will produce more brood than a single 14 x 12 can cope with, so you are then faced with the prospect of having a box that's too small or using a second brood box - and there are probably few beekeepers who would relish doing a Demaree and putting a 14 x 12 above 3 or 4 supers on top of a queen in a lower 14 x 12 as an example. I inspect the uppermost box for swarming weekly, because they do the queen cells in top most brood box if they do them. I started out with nationals, decided the above and just bought the conversion ekes (masiemores are better, they go on the bottom of a standard National rather than Thorne's which go on the top so you have to take the runners off) on the basis that if I didn't get on with 14x12s I could always go back. This inspired us to develop a new higher density polystyrene nuc box that has more than 1 basic purpose.Please note - All of our products must be installed on a level solid base, the usual but not limited to methods are either concrete, paving slabs (flags), a wooden frame.

The shed floor comes as standard with 18mm oriented strand board on 38 x 50 runners keeping the floor 2" off the ground.Ensure any consignment note from the carrier is clearly marked ‘unexamined’ – deleting the words ‘in good condition’. I did try them for a couple of years and decided against and prefer the management of 2 Nationals (or WBC's for that matter). All parts of the frame have been machine tooled to our usual exacting standards and just the top bars may have these slight cosmetic flaws which will not be noticed by the bees and will in no way affect their function. Due to the soft properties of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) and the steam moulding method used to create these products we must inform you that every box will have some sign of manufacturing marks, whether this be from ejecting from the tool onto the heavily padded conveyor belt or light marks from the core steam vents. All the miscellaneous kit that I own is mostly from ABELO too, and I’ve never had an issue with anything.

I’ve had a few courier issues with damaged items - yet Abelo have always sorted them promptly and to my satisfaction every time. Some of our sheds may require guttering due to the large amount of water falling to the rear panel that may cause water to soak into the unit.I found (and more importantly so did one of my colonies) the space on a single standard not enough for both the early year population explosion and storing food for over wintering. I feel my bees over-winter better on a single brood and with OMFs, they have more space to retreat from any severe weather conditions than if a single standard brood only.
