Transferring a Deep Frame Nuc into Medium Supers
I purchased nuc that came on Deep frames. I only have medium boxes and medium frames, I'm wondering what's the best way to transition them into medium boxes/frames?
I was thinking of:
Medium Box - with empty Medium Frames
Medium Box - The 5 deep nuc frames would hang in the middle of this box (no frames would be added on the sides)
The new nuc would start in a hive with 3 mediums, is this too much space? or should I purchase a deep box to replace the 2 bottom mediums instead?
Is it correct to assume the bees will build upwards and I can eventually remove the deep frames on the bottom?
Thank you and any advice or techniques would be appreciated.
