The NEW Paradise Honey Nuc & Mate, made in Finland is a multifunction hive for building new colonies or raising Queen Bees. Equipped with sliding entrance reducers, floor/base grills, Zone dividing plate, Varroa Test plates and a Top Feeder, this NUC hive has it all.
Starting a new colony is done by placing necessary amount of frames with brood to NUC & mating box. The box can be divided into two 3–frame mini hive to mate two queens at the same time . Later the dividing wall can be removed if the beekeeper wishes to take colonies over the winter with 6 frames.
The Nuc & Mate Hive is made of food grade, extra hardened, expanded polystyrene (EPS) with a density over 100 kg/m³. In proper use, the Nuc & Mate Hive will last for several decades.
During transport the hive top is secured with a strap. In the apiary the hive tops are kept in place with a stone or brick weighing about 2 kg. In hot climates or during transport the top can be turned upside down to form a tunnel above the frames ensuring additional ventilation while a screen placed on top of the hive prevents the bees from escaping.
