5 frame NUC sbb construction- k.i.s.s.

Slapping together a 5 frame NUC box. Any reason I can't just staple #8 screen to the bottom of the box for a SBB?

Figured I'd drill a hole for the entrance, or give em a top entrance

...i've done this. the porblem is that there is not proper bee space on the bottom. it's possible for bees (including queens) to get mashed between the screen and the frame bottom.

i use them, but i am also careful with them.
