    Default Transfering Nuc to Deep

    First attempt at a video, I was fully distracted by my son-in-law who had never seen my bee's and is terrified of them and the fact that this was my first attempt @ foundationless and they did a wonderful job, I am so impressed.

    Nice video, I have a question though. I have seen alot of discussion on this website about going foundationless. What is the benefit of it?

    Thx. Well, one benefit is you know where the wax came from and that it will be as chemical free as possible and it allows the bees to build cells the size they want to.

    Very nice, you sure make it look easy. Are your bees Packer fans?
    Did you do anything to the frames, like a popsicle stick or starter wax, anything like that?
    Thanks for sharing

    Thx everyone, I turned the wedge sideways and nailed it in. No on the packers, just ended up that way.
