I installed my nuc into the hive box on Wednesday evening and placed the entrance reducer in the front. The nuc had a lot of bees so I placed the reducer with the 3-4 inches opening. Today when returning home from work, there seemed to be quite a few bees on the bottom board and on the landing. Wondering what is the best indication to take off the entrance reducer.
Also, the beekeepers I bought the nuc from said to put the 5 frames alone into an empty box and add frames as needed. None of the books or youtube videos say to do this. Any opinions of how I should add the frames, or if I should have followed the original advice in the first place?
