    Default Installing Nuc into full hive question

    I have two hives that dies this winter and I am going to purchase two 5-frame nuc's. I am going to clean up the old hives a little and install the nuc's into the old fully built-out hives. Any suggestions how best to do this? Do I install the five new frames in the center of the top deep? Or, do I install them in the center of the bottom deep? Any other tips?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    If you are putting them into 2 ten frame deep, I would make each deep a hive and place the five nuc frames in the center. Be sure of why the hives died out making sure the reason is not transferable.

    I would eliminate one of the deeps altogether till the hive has filled out a good portion of the single deep and then put the empty deep on the top. Good luck.
