    Re: Nuc for a Trap

    Thanks for the replies... It is a deep nuc. I was just a little worried about how much space the frames plus foundation took up.

    Nuc for a Trap

    Is a 5 frame nuc box with frames and foundation large enough for a swarm trap?

    Cure Time

    Is there a rule of thumb about how long it takes the bees to cure honey? I would assume weather plays a part but have no idea as to how long the process takes.

    I hope they're moving in. Had no luck last year attracting a swarm but things are looking up so far this year.

    Re: Crush and Strain ?'s

    Thanks for the idea on separating the wax and honey in the oven. Are you saying that after it separates, you remove it from the oven, let the wax harden and then just lift it off?

    Thanks for the replies.. Is the amount of bees you can push into the box important and how long would you wait for the straglers to accept their new home?
