    Default Lyson Nuc Box

    Does anyone have experience with the Lyson polystyrene 6 frame nuc box? I've always used 5-frame deep wooden boxes. Is moisture a bigger deal in polystyrene?

    I don't have any Lyson but I use the Betterbee poly hives. Have for several years. Moisture has never been a problem as long as outside rain doesn't get in. You need to use the betterbee lids to ensure that.

    Astro,

    I have a total of 1 of them. For the money, it is a good box. They require a "quilt" under the lid. They have ventilated bottoms, which is a good thing. With the ventilated bottoms, moisture has not been an issue in any of the polystyrene boxes. My dislikes for the Lyson are it is a tight 6 frames, thinner walls and over all design. Too many gadgets...

    Have you tried this company? They make a very solid box.
