    Re: Nuc box

    This is my second year also. Was just wondering if I needed those nuc boxes or just use a brood box. Thanks so much.

    Re: "supered" 2 weeks ago

    I did that this weekend also. I added a frame of foundation in the center of the box. Can mites prevent them from drawing? I am trying chemical free and haven't checked the counts.

    Hi Ross,
    I am new, so be easy. When you said you added "empties" to the hives, which box did you add? Also, when should we open up the entrances? I live in Central Texas. Thank you in advance.
