Corrugated Cardboard Nuc Box


Corrugated Cardboard Nuc Box puts the profit back in nuc sales! Nucs are lightweight and easy to transport. There is no need for box returns and frame exchanges when cardboard nuc boxes are a fraction of the cost of wooden nucs. Boxes are wax impregnated for greater durability and ship flat to save on shipping charges. Nuc boxes make great swarm traps. Place 5 9⅛” (23.18 cm) frames of drawn comb in the box. Secure the lid with the Rubber Nuc Strap sold separately. Position the box in a tree or other location near your apiary.  Use our 1½” (3.81 cm) cap plug (sold separately) to seal the entrance when you are ready to move the swarm.
