Looks good, what do you figure it cost for 12 of them?

About 12-15 dollars. If you just count the wood I?m at 8.00 then the #8 cloth for the bottoms. But can get a lot of bottoms from a roll.

$8.00. I thought that Advantech was real expensive. Isn?t that the one that is not affected by weather.

I pay 35 a sheet so it is 8.75 a nuc. I get 4 from the sheet  Plus nails glue and screen  puts it up . But I enjoy the time . Got to paint them too soo have to find some left over paint or mark down .  Oh didn?t answer the weather question . I had some sitting in water and not swell, I built 4 last year and no problem with them yet. I redid a shed with it and it last.

Ahah. I got the impression that was the total cost for all. Sounds about right. Thanks.

Jtmedic. I have not understood this issue. If the advantech is so good, and doesn't even swell while sitting in water, why bother to paint them?

What JC said is true. This stuff is suppose to be the trick, but the following is just my my opinion, once you cut the stuff,  leaving the newly cut edges exposed without the outside treatment which is placed on the original sheet and it?s edges from the manufacturer, I am thinking it is a good Idea to paint, at least the edges generously. This may not be necessary but as the old saying, an ounce of prevention.  advantec, diamond, and the newer gorilla glue flooring is made specifically for sub flooring and has an impressive testing performance track record. I noticed the gorilla went up from 25 to 28 a sheet at my local Home Depot.  So far, I have only used advantec but fully intend to try the gorilla 🦍 which is made in my neighboring state of Alabama for comparison. 
I will add,, Good job on the nucs. So far I have only used the advantec as tops and bottoms  for the no warpage advantage and I love the stuff. It is made with a polyurethane glue, use a good mask when cutting.

What thickness of this advantech sheet should be used for making your nucs and bait boxes? 3/4 inch? 5/8? And are you using it for your hives also? I assume the gorilla glue does add toxicity to the hive environment.

As far as the gorilla glue is concerned, I had the same question so I looked it up and gorilla is also polyurethane based. So I concluded that All three brands must be similar in that respect. I use 22/33 or 3/4 for my hive tops and bottoms.

This is an example of the legacy brand. (Gorilla glue) one minute video. All three brands have basically the same warranty .

I caulk the cut and the nail holes then paint for added protections

I for one, can't tell a noticeable difference in it from the last time that I used plywood. But honestly I did not pick up the plywood which was next to it and compare when I purchased the advantech. I agree with JTC probably a little.
