    Default Splits?

    Do you have to put splits into nucs. Can I just put mine into a deep and reduce the entrance. Will that be O.K. TIA

    A deep with reduced entrance is fine.

    I've wondered similar things. Is there something special about the five frame nuc's size? I'm using eight frame medium boxes. Do I need to split into a five frame medium nuc, or can I just use an eight frame box?

    you can split in to what ever u want,it really depends on what your intentions are are u splitting to have more hives,then use your 8 frame,or a deep either one,just remember small entrance till the split can defend the hive.

    Yes, I want the hives to myself, so I guess I should use a deep with an entrance reducer.

    Although this may not relate to the thread: Does it matter if I put the new splits on a 4 way pallet. Will there be any drifting.

    There is always drifting. It is a fact of life. I don't worry about it.
