Pro 5-Frame Nuc Box (Plastic) with Locking Lid

Ensure your honey bees are well-protected with our Pro Nuc Box. The Pro Nuc bee box is a quality five-frame nuc made completely from durable polypropylene.

Complete with a fully locked lid, our 5-frame deep nuc boxes have two different feeding ports for your bees (for one-gallon bottles and soda bottles) and closable entrances. 

As the largest beekeeping supplier and manufacturer, we pride ourselves on offering only high-quality products to our customers.

Ready to Use

No assembly is required—you can use our nucleus hives as they are delivered. If you want to use the feeding ports, simply cut the desired feeding point under the lid of your nuc box as required.

Ideal for Beekeeping Expansion

This nuc box is an essential addition to any bee yard, designed to support the growth of a new colony. It accommodates deep frames, providing ample space for the queen and her bees. The box ensures stability and security, making it a reliable choice for beekeeping supplies.

    Everyone should own at least one

    These Nuc boxes are perfect for an impromptu swarm call, transporting frames of brood to a new hive, holding and transporting new queens, temporary holding for a frame with the queen when you need to do splits or other work where you don’t want the queen moving around the hive, etc. Every beekeeper should have at least one of these boxes.

    Pro Nuc 5 Frame Plastic Nuc Box with Locking Lid

    by Gary Stenger on Mar 28, 2022

    I am very happy with this product. My only hitch is that the entrances don't seem to be real bee friendly or I am doing something wrong with it. Not sure which one it is.
