I think the real question is what do you want them on? Deep frames? Small cell? Top Bars in a Top Bar Hive? If you want large cells in deeps, then nucs are the way to go. If you want small cell or mediums or top bars, then you need to see if you can get a nuc with the size cells, frames or bars that you need for that. Otherwise, if you can't, I would buy a package.
