    Default Mating nuc robbing ?

    How far away from your main yards do you guys usually have to place your mating nucs to help prevent robbing ? And within a mating nuc only yard, do they tend to get started robbing each other?

    Default Re: Mating nuc robbing ?

    I haven't been doing it very long but my mating nucs have only a really small entrance, half inch in diameter. I use full frame hive bodies divided into 4 partitions of 2 frame nucs. The 1/2" hole is easy to defend and very hard to rob.
