ok... today is the big day to graft!!!
Here is my game plan:
I have a nuc that is queen right and is spilling over with bees. I am going to, this morning, take the queen out and place her in a three frame nuc with a frame of honey, the frame with the queen and adhereing bees and than another frame (not sure what type of frame ie bees, drawn frame, foundation, etc.)
Than I am going to move the new nuc that has the queen into the same place that the queenless nuc is so that the field force will fly back into the queen right nuc. I will than move the queenless nuc with all the bees to a different part of the bee yard and face it backwards.
Than tonight I will graft out of the queenless nuc. I plan to graft only a small amount... maybe ten cups.
Any advice?? What should the third frame be when I place the queen into a new nuc???
