    I bought two 2 Frame Nucs after watching many videos. I live in SoCal wine country and only work with feral bees. I was amazed with the quality of choice of wood and cuts used! I have bought many boxes of all sizes and never seen such attention to detail in manufacturing as these NUCS. I highly recommend everyone buying a few of these. I did make a small alteration since I use external quart size jars to feed. Our weather is always sunny here in Southern California and this makes good sense on our ranch. I removed the two staples holding the one x two inch bottom board rear entrance and reattached it as a platform at the same location to allow the quart size jar feeder to be used. This way no major cutting into the lid or the need to buy the extra top feeder. I have already put mine to use and have never been so satisfied! I will be buying more of these NUCS for sure!

    After several successful orders with Barnyard Bees, I ordered this nuc and hive beetle entrances back in June 2020 and didn’t get around to unboxing the order until December because I didn’t need to use the equipment. I found that the corner joints did not line up so I called Barnyard Bees and they were aware of the issue and sent me 4 new sides which fit perfectly. Can’t wait to start a new colony in this 2 frame nuc box. Thanks for great service and standing behind your products.

    I have ordered a few unassembled frame kits. As expected everything was fine with them. My review is more about the YouTube videos. David does a very thorough job of explaining things. As a first year beekeeper, I found his videos very useful. I now subscribe to his YouTube channel. I can’t even begin to explain how much I have learned from him. He’s also very good at letting you know that if you live in a colder climate (like me) things may be done a bit differently and he tells you how to do it and the difference. Awesome job. Keep up the good work!

    Dave is the best. His videos have helped me a lot as I just started keeping bees last year. Thanks barnyard bees and Dave for your help.

    Great equipment, at an amazing price. I will be buying more, and purchasing some hives as well. Shipping was fast. Looking forward to doing a lot of business with Barnyard Bees.
