It’s pronounced nucular…

A nuc or nucleus hive is a smaller version of a normal 10-frame or 8-frame hive that can be used to catch swarms or make splits of an existing hive. Brushy Mountain had a sale on a 5 frame complete Nuc back in April, and I decided it might come in handy some day.

I decided to have a bit of fun with this hive so I painted it yellow with radioactive symbols on the side as a play on the word nucleus. I give to the world the Nuclear Hive (please make sure you pronounce it correctly).
