Here are the files for some nucs. They make FOUR – 5 frame NUC boxes from ONE – 4 x 8 sheet of plywood. These have a 1 inch hole in them for bees to come and go. Use either a canning jar lid or Model#279 Metal Disc Entry available from kelleybees.com as a closure. Both methods are discussed in Swarm Trap Plans – 10 Frame Lang Deep.

I haven’t made any of these nucs yet, but here are some pictures of what they will look like. Just envision them without any hanging board on the side. Once I get some made I will update these pictures.

Metal Disc Entry
Model #: 279-Disc
Just bought 12 off Amazon $21.99
There’s a few selling stainless ones out there also. But check 1st, they may be the small Diameter : 6.8cm / 2.68inches
I purchased some from Amazon as well. They came from China. The ones I got were substatially smaller. I will likely be utilizing used canning lids for my closure devices once I run out of those #279 entry discs.
Thanks for the link update. I have been going through some personal life troubles. I will add that to my list of things that need updating…
