More info

Nuc boxes or nucleus hives are essentially a beehive in miniature. They are used for various reasons, but mainly to create new colonies and queen rearing.

The dimensions of the nuc hive being physically smaller than a normal beehive, allow the bees to control the humidity and temperature. Because there are less bees in a nucleus hive than a normal full sized beehive the reduced size of the nuc is beneficial to the bees.
