Not to hijack the other thread. And to keep my thinking straight. And last summer my first year to play with nucs on these lines. I made up some five frame nuc boxes last summer. (Late June July) An and had problems with bee Quantity in some of them. Would I have been better of pulling two of the frames out and putting following boards in there place? Thinking of spring and making plans for it. if I need to make some following boards or not. When I make splits in the spring Should I move them to a differnt yard?
