    Default 2 nucs but activity is different.

    Got 2 Carn nuc today, and one, the front has way more bees on the front then the other. This nuc was quite heavy too. Does this mean they're swarming or hot??? Should I think about rehiving it already this evening when it gets cooler out? The other nucs only have 5-10 bees at the entrance which the one in question has least a 100.

    You are going to have to pop the tops to accurately answer your questions. You need to find out how populous they are, being heavy could just be honey.

    Even if it's just honey in there, if the nuc is full with no room to expand, it's time to move to a full sized hive. Low temps aren't a problem for us in the Midwest now, at least my part (96F this afternoon).

    Take a look, you will know if you need more space.
