Have you put any bees in these nucs yet?  If so, how are they working out?

I have been using these double nucs for several years now. Work just fine too.

I may have to give these a try.  I just got done building 70 nuc boxes.  That was a LOT of work.  Now I have to get into them next week and begin removing the Apivar strips, adding boxes for expansion and surplus honey, screened inner covers, and ventilating supers.  Kinda late on the screened inner covers and ventilating supers for the nucs but I just had those built for me.  Using deeps like that saves, labor, time, space on the hive stands, and a deep box is more stable in a stack than a nuc box.
