Nucs, or Nucleus Colonies, are small honey bee colonies created from larger colonies. The term refers both to the smaller size box and the colony of honey bees within it. The name is derived from the fact that a nuc hive is centered around a queen- the nucleus of the honey bee colony.
 
The NUC box, a smaller version of a normal beehive, designed to hold fewer frames. The NUC box is smaller because it is intended to contain a smaller number of honeybees, and a smaller space makes it easier for the bees to control the temperature and humidity of the colony, which is vital for brood rearing.
 
They are a very useful beekeeping tool, they can be used to generate new queens , Mating Nucs" or as a holding place for spare queens or can be used to amalgamate a newly raised queen to a full sized hive.
