    For the benefit of newbees and all who may not be lingo saavy—

    General rule when speaking of hive body sizes—“supers” means simply “above” (as the pre-fix “sub” means “below”) so can be a deep, a medium, or a shallow hive body. These take different frame sizes and though a medium frame can be used in a deep, the reverse is not possible. Please always use specific designations. Ditto for the “full frames”—one does not know what size these are—deeps or mediums—the most commonly used sizes.
    A “nuke box” (actually “nuc” or short for “nucleus hive box”) is a 5 frame (deeps or mediums will work) box used for small cutouts or swarms or raising queens—so half the size of a full Langstroth hive. The smaller size allows the bees to easily patrol their home for invaders, keep the brood nest warm, and grow till enough vigor to occupy a full hive body—deep or medium.
