Our new polystyrene Nucleus Hive holds 6 BS brood frames, for National and WBC hives, and comes complete with a built in Feeder. It has an open mesh floor to help with varroa control and to help with ventilation during transit. Comes with 4 feet to keep the hive off the ground, wooden float for the feeder, a disc entrance for easier control of the entrance and a clear coverboard for easy viewing without completely opening up the hive.
Polystyrene is a great material for beehives:
Its made from a very high density material, 100g/litre - upto 3 times stronger than the material used for packaging.
Its lightweight and durable.
Its insulation properties also makes it especially suitable for nucs and small colonies as fewer bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing.
Comes in a Light Green colour. (Does not include frames)

I just bought one of these poly nucs (July 2014) and here are my first impressions.
Very flimsy material. I was painting the hive as recommended and let it fall from my hands onto the pebble driveway. So a fall of less than 3 feet onto a soft surface and yet the poly nuc sustained noticeable cracks and dents. It is difficult to imagine in being robust enough to last many years, or indeed, with any knocks to it whether it would keep its structural integrity at all.
I feel it would be best to spend a little more money and to purchase a wooden nuc instead. But, I may yet be convinced…we shall see. I will review this product again following some usage to see if somehow, and with my tender care, the poly nuc survives the next two seasons.

Poly Nuc Hives
Just received two of these today, Very impressed with the build quality also the strength of the Polystyrene, they look smart as standard (light green), just need the days to get warmer and longer so that I can get some life in them.
