    american made clothing is the best in the world if you can find it.. your going to pay a little more but we get better value for our dollar. that stuff you buy from china wont last as long. I agree our corporations pay a very high corporate tax in the states. our corporations go overseas to get cheaper labor so they can turn around and sell their product for a big profit in the states while the company ceo gets 30 million in bonus for doing nothing. You call this the new world economy. i'm waiting for the next great depression to hit us again. I hope you are ready. The system is broke.

    I picked up my nuc in one of these. They're fairly sturdy and the frames fit just fine in the one I have. The ventilation holes at the top were big enough that bees could get out. Typically not a huge deal unless they are riding inside a van for a long roadtrip!

    Seems it'll hold up for awhile, but I've also made up some wooden nucs. I'll use this for short term stuff, but I don't want to have it fall apart with bees in it.

    Has anyone noticed a problem with the amount of light that shines through these boxes? Don't the bees like it darker inside? I have few of them and am considering paint or some other covering to make them darker inside. My primary use is for swarm traps or to put swarms I capture in them. Any thoughts on the light issue?

    I would cover the holes with duct tape or something similar. Swarm traps work best when there is no light inside the trap. I use the Jester nucs all the time. Holes are not a problem except when it's pretty cold. Then splits do better if I cover the holes on the side with duct tape to help them keep the brood warm. They hold up well, my customers love them.

    Does anyone know a maker of a 4-frame nuc box similar to this? Nobody sells 5-frame nucs around here, so I'm looking for something which is a bit more standard locally, and liked how durable these looked as opposed to the cardboard ones.

    I own 5 and if you need a nuc box to buy they are the way to go.

    I like the ones I make best but they do work very well considering the weight and all.

    to bad they aren't USA made though

    where is that guy that advertises his wood working? He is in the US - He could make them... and we could buy them direct from him. 3 year old labor in China cut out, USA product in.

    I have 2 Jester EZ nucs, and, like you had a problem folding the first one, on the second one, I scored the creases where the folds go, much easier to fold.

    If you're using them for bait hives, tape over the holes on the side so less sunlight gets into the nuc. Bees are reported to like dark better. In this climate, if the bees are going to be in them for any length of time I've had better luck putting tape over the holes on the side. Brood stays warmer.
