Re: Nuc to TBH: what NOT to do.
While I agree, it isn't perhaps the easiest or best way to install to a tbh with a nuc, I am picking up on some hostility towards the 'natural' crowd.
let me preface this by saying that I only get bees from cutouts and swarms.
I don't see the point to make life 'easy' for bees.
In fact, in a 'natural' situation, that is, when bees ditch people and go pick their own place to live, minus our involvement, life for them is usually very not easy. Life for bees in a 'natural' setting is rife with conflict. pests, predators, adequate hive space or lack therof. 'easy bees' to me are not natural at all. Bees in such an environment are constantly in an adapt and overcome situation. If they don't, off to Darwin's Locker for them.
Of course, I tend to think the same way about people. We always seem to seek out the 'easy' way when often, the path where we must overcome and adapt is the better route for us.
that's just me though.
No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
