    I have been forced to make an early split due to a queen that was sent to early and would like advice on using a five frame nuc to do it. I had planned on using three to five frames of bees brood, and honey/pollen put right next to the parent hive.what other methods or advice can you give me?

    I'd put two or three frames of brood (if you can spare it) two frames of honey/pollen and one empty for expansion and shake in a couple more frames of bees off of some open brood to make up for the field bees that will return to the old hive. Put it where ever you want.
