Hellow everyone, new this year to bee keeping. I was fortunate enough to pick up an 8 frame nuc from a local source in April. I found a beekeeper getting rid of a bunch of hives and equipment near bloomington and took everything he had. I bought another nuc in May and a few days later caught a small swarm that I put in a five frame nuc. So I went from no bees to lots ( Well lots for me ) The hives are doing well, but the little swarm 2-3000 bees seemed to really struggle. I added two frames of brood and bees to the nuc last week and did not see any evidence of fighting etc. I do not really expect any honey this year, but the weather has been really good. I have a honey super on my first hive, but they are not drawing it out yet. That is my first year summary so far and I look forward to learning from all of you.
