    Re: Why keep Nucs?

    One of the reasons that I use nucs is because we have SHB and wax moths. If you put a few frames in an 8 or 10 frame box they can not defend the entire area and it gives these pest a place to hide.

    Re: Add a second deep or not

    If they have both boxes almost full, I would give them another box. If you let them get honey bound they may swarm on you. Brood rearing should be slowing down, but I don't know that I would take the...
