This great bee, bait hive/nuc set-up is the perfect for attracting and catching swarms.  We have 3 of these Nuc’s placed in varies locations and catch at least 1 or 2 swarms a year, also know as “FREEBEES”

The set-up comes with the following:

1 x Pre-built ply wood Nuc, made of 5mm ply wood side and a galvanised roof, including metal frame runners, crown board, and feet runners

5 x national bee frames (fully assembled)

5 x wired brood wax sheets

1 x bee lure

How To Use

  1. Place the Nuc at least 1 metre off the floor with entrance facing south if possible.
  2. Take a cotton bud and dip it in the lure and then place this inside the bait Nuc near the entrance
  3. Secure the Nuc and tie-down to ensue it remains in place during bad weather
  4. Place the Nuc in a place that is both shady and sunny throughout the day

Top Tips

  1. To prolong the Nuc’s life, why not paint the exterior
  2. Top up the lure scent by re-dipping the cotton bud in the fluid every 6 weeks
  3. Swarming season runs from late April to August
  4. Increase your chances of attracting a swarm by replacing 1 or 2 of the new frames with any old frames that contain old wax (not essentail but can help)
