    Question

    Some of you have mentioned using 4-frame nucs so that they would stack on a Lang hive (2, side-by-side). What demisions do you use on the widths of the of a 4-frame?

    Thanks,

    Half the width of a lansgroth box, 8 1/8" wide by 19 7/8 long (outside measurments). You can probably make them an even 8" and not work too badly. You'll just have an 1/8" of the rim showing if they fit nicely and less if they don't.

    These also work nicely as general nucs, mating nucs and supers (side by side). Before I got PermaComb I was making these for supers so I could standardize on deeps and not have to lift deep boxes.

    When using them for supers I did a couple of variations. I was afraid they might not communicate between the two so I cut a notch on some of them on one side so the bees could get between the two nucs when several were stacked up. They all worked about as well, so I dropped the notch idea because they didn't work as well for a nuc.
