Quick question that is pretty simple.
I'm banking on having about 10-15 hives come through the winter (In upstate NY). I ordered 10 packages (lots of reasons I did this over nucs... that is irrelevant right now) and I was wondering if you think it would be worth it to drop each package into a bee-less frame of capped brood?
I was watching a video by Michael Palmer and the point of not having any young bees to nurse the larvae and such from the new package... got me wondering if this would be a smart play. I know that a package will build just fine here especially with some feeding... but I assume this could give a pretty good boost if the other hives can afford it.
