looking in the NUC
one of the hardest things in beekeeping i find is to keep from looking in the hive. i kno i need to do periodic checks and inspections, to BEEaware of what is going on and where there at. BUT today i finaly seperated some honey,necter,larva,eggs,brood and nurse bees and put them in a nuc. well all i want to do now is go outside and see how far they have come. of course it has only been 9 hours. SO should i or shouldn't i look in every couple days ? can i or cant i ? when can i expext to see a cup formed? will they do one or more? can i change frames of what ever is needed if they run low before the queen is hatched? any answers, input, or suggetions would be aprieciated.
