    Re: Dadant Nuc

    Re: Will they recover the nectar/honey?

    I would put it in an empty frame using rubber bands to hold it in place. The bees will connect it to the frames. You save the honey and the comb.

    Re: Bee Vacs

    I built one like the Robo Bee Vac. Works great every time, easy to build, easy to use. Very few dead bees and any trash that gets sucked up stays in the bottom. http://youtu.be/922gkjV3iqA
