    Default Nuc I bought has issues including chalkbrood

    I picked up a nuc on Friday. Moved it into a hive on Sunday. The bottom of the nuc was covered with chalkbrood "mummies", lots of something that looked black and granular, a hive beetle, and some larvae that I think is hive beetle, but could be wax moth.

    I know hives usually take care of chalkbrood themselves, but will a nuc be ok? Anything I can do to help them out?

    Thanks!

    I would call the nuc supplier and get a new nuc.

    Yes a nuc will look after it self if there is lots of bees.If a frame is bad with chalk try to move it to a wall.when the bees that are going to come through do, remove the frame and put in a froundtion frame or another drawn out frame if you have any.Keep the bottom board cleaned every third day for a full cicle. scraping should be cleared of bee hives yard
