    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    Hi Kathy,

    I'll be interested to hear how it goes. Thanks for posting. It sounds like the bees will have to come down to exit the hive. I would not worry about the them finding the sugar.

    Oldtimer,

    Thanks for this and all your interesting posts. I really enjoyed the one on raising queens without grafting. I am a teacher and you happen to have all the signs of being a great...

    Re: Using a Warre quilt

    I am about to set up my first Warre and have some vinyl coated polyester screen that we installed around a dog door in our screen door. Tough stuff. I would guess that a bee would not eat the vinyl....

    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    I just heard back from the maker of the Warre hive that I am getting. He used to sell an adapter just like the one Zonker posted and I was set to try. Interestingly, he found that the bees would...

    Re: 3 deeps = successful overwintering?

    I am exploring the Warre method this year. In this management system, for those not familiar, bees winter in two boxes. (Note that a Warre box is about the size of a 5 frame nuc.) Then two empty...

    I hear you. Not getting any office work done.

    I think I am going the route of your last drawing. :thumbsup: Matches my carpentry skills.

    For a needlessly complex but fun project, I might, at...

    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    Zonker,

    I like the simplicity of your new drawing. Since I don't own a nuc box, I might just make the board bigger and set my lang hive body on top. I just need to fill in the space on either side...

    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    Here is an alternative concept, but admittedly more work. Perhaps the odds are better if the bees work horizontally. I could place an L shaped insert in either back corner of the hive body. It...

    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    Zonker,

    Nice picture! I like the blocks in case of high winds. :D :D This design would sure be easy. I might place two following boards on either side of the five frames below so I could remove...

    Re: moving a 5 frame nuc into a Warre

    Zonker,

    That would be great. I asked one Warre hive producer. He said they used to sell an adapter but it was not very successful, so they discontinued it. I have an inquiry in as to the design....

    Odfrank,
