About this item
Nucs were exactly what I wanted. Great service thankyou.
Very good - fast delivery
Wish I'd ordered the plastic top sheets at the same time
Very good little nucs. Quick delivery, excellent service.
I contacted Bee equipment as two of the four mating boxes arrives built but had no queen excluders. Later I ordered two more and these missed the plastic clear boards. No response.
At around £8 (in a sale) they seem good value. A little small perhaps but these have the bonus that the feeder can be removed revealing a gap where you can put 2 extra frames if need be (better than my old ones). Comes with everything needed except the clear crown board -- ordered that (for 40p) but be warned these don't fit without adjustment and even then not perfectly (back to my home-made versions).
Some dents to the three that I ordered but not so much that they prevented use but it's still sloppy service -- they were boxed well so it was not the courier's fault. I bought an extra plastic feeder to slot in the end but it really didn't fit these models so what was it supposed to be used for? I think the Bee Equipment website needs more information about what fits with what to avoid mistakes and to aid beekeepers.
