    Welcome to Beesource!

    > trying to find out when to put super on my nucs

    Perhaps if you tell us more info you might get a more informed response.
    Are your nucs still in the 5 frame boxes they arrived in? How many frames now have drawn comb?

    Are you going to keep them in nucs? or are you going to put them in 10 or 8 frame hives? How many frame nucs are they and are they deep or med. frames? Like RS said, need more info.

    Welcome Melvin! When what they have is 70 or 80 percent full of brood and food add a super.
