Honey Bound 5 frame nuc?
I picked up a nuc back in early October which took about a month to get up and running. After reducing the entrance and feeding for 2-3 weeks, I removed the feeder. Since then they haven't drawn out any more of the additional 3 frames in the 8 frame deep. After going through for the first time in about a month Sunday I noticed more nectar and capped honey than brood. It seems as if they forced the queen to swarm, as yesterday there was a small swarm about softball size in the garden. I checked out the nuc again today and still full of nectar.
Not sure if the swarm came from this nuc as I didn't see any queen/ swarm cells. But there could have been one that I missed. Any way to get these bees to draw out more comb and get better established?
