A great, affordable polystyrene mating nuc.

Three plastic frames and removable feeding compartment.

Assemble the nuc with a strip of foundation only, no comb, in each frame. Fill the feeder compartment with candy.
Shake young bees into a box and spray them with sugar syrup.
Drop one large cupful of sticky, wet bees into the mini-nuc, and close-up, making sure that ventilation is clear.
Leave for about an hour, until the bees roar in panic, then run a virgin queen in.
Leave in a cool dark place for two or three days.
Release the bees at the chosen site.
Check in two weeks for signs of laying.
