They did. They used up quite a bit of the worlds stockpile of nukes on the moon, so when the war moved to earth, they cut their losses and transferred everything back down to earth, saving the nukes for clearing BETA in the open, since it does not seem to work on Hives once pass a certain size (works on newly landed ones though). However with the presence of laser class 19 days after the first landing, nukes have become a very expensive option, so not many missile based ones are used. Even obital dropped ones have a low percentage of hit, and even lower chance of doing damage to a Hive.

When in deadly danger, when beset by doubt. Run in little circles, wave your arms and shout.
