Painting New Nucs

As you grow your beekeeping business you need more supplies including. In May, we got more unpainted nucs. We were planning on making a lot of splits this year so getting new nucs was important because we wanted to use nucs to make the splits. Nucs are five framed boxes with a bottom board already built in.

Here is Bethany and Abigail diligently painting nuc boxes a lovely pink (or purple, as Abigail would say).

More painting. As you can see we use red disposable cup for pouring our paint into. We refill as needed. Also notice our piles of frames. We still hadn’t cleaned our garage completely from the Central Iowa Beekeeper Association’s auction.

We do not paint a lot but when we do we make our own little party out of it.
