Picking up a nuc? Not sure what to do? We have a brief How to Install a Nuc video that covers the steps you need to take.
What you need
You will need to have a hive stand, bottom box, lid, hive tool and empty frames (3-5) ready. Prior to bringing your nuc home, place your hive stand where your hive will be permanently located.
Assembling your new hive
When you bring your nuc home, you will place the nuc on the bottom box, open the front entrance on the nuc box, and leave it there for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you will remove the nuc box from the hive stand and assemble your hive.
