Re: Trying it again-one question
Thanks for the input. I thought of another idea and that is to use a screen bottom board that I use for my 10 frame boxes. I've done this before with nucs and I don't know why I didn't think of it. I just put a 3/4'' strip of wood down the middle and rest one side of the nuc on one side of the bottom and the other side on the wood strip then reduce the entrance.

Being that this starter is already "made" adding some new nurse bees with a frame of capped brood should still give it sufficient young bees. I'll inspect it after the move to make sure they are still clinging as they were.
