Re: a good candy to feed nuc
You probably do not need to feed much if any. If you do use sugar water. Close up entrance to protect. 3/8 entrance is enough. Screen another opening to vent. I have sometimes used a divider board close to the frame. Raise it up a little with a stick and feed with a small jar on sticks on other side. cover with ply or cloth so you can open one side. They stay calm.
I have not tried, but some advocate robber screens for nuc.
