Re: Old frames with Honey and new Nuc?
Sure, you're fine. I like to make sure they have enough space for the queen to lay as well but it sounds like your half full frames will be OK in that area. Keep an eye on them as far as population goes if you think they start to take off. I've had first year nucs swarm after putting them into a well stocked 10 frame box (carniolans, which can ramp up quick). In fact, in one day I had a strong, wintered over hive and two, just bought within the previous month nuc's swarm all at once. My fault for not recognizing that they needed space when I hived them.
