Mike, can you explain further how you requeen with a nuc? Is it as simple as taking the 5-frame nuc and placing those 5 frames into a queenless hive?

Also, I may have mentioned before, but winevines is my mentor. Through her efforts, I was able to overwinter two nucs which we are passing on to this spring's students. Overwintering has made a disciple of me too. And, well I'm sure you know how brutal our Virginia winters are.
