Re: Using 5 frame rig for beekeeping - converting to deeps
Ron, that could work, but with two downsides that come immediately to mind.
First, a double stacked NUC hive could be vulnerable in the 60 mph wind associated with every thunderstorm. Secondly, because the bees will fill the space and then swarm to find more space elsewhere. You will be distracted by anti-swarming strategies instead of enjoying your bees and assisting them to make a surplus. JMO
I chose 8 frame deeps and am happy with that, it works for me.
I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up :)
