Re: Plans for 6 Frame NUC
My preference and I know 4 and 5's are the norm.
1. If I do a 4 or a 5, it is not long at all until it needs to be moved into a 10.
2. Not as big a transition to a 10 frame deep, as initially now only four new frames. Bees population better fits size of cavity.
3. Gives me flexibility to add further frames of brood from a strong hive over time to NUC and when NUC is ready for a super, it is off to a strong start.
I know the design is not earth shattering concepts but the concepts can be incorporated into 4 and 5 frame NUCs.
