    Re: 5 frame deep Nuc to Warré the easy? way

    Perhaps I am much like that French peasant. The ruralish countryside where I live hasn't changed much in 100 years, I am making my own hives so mass-production isn't relevant, and using Russian...

    Confused. What has changed since Warré? Are you saying when Warré was around his hives might have been better, but today things are different? Confused.

    Re: 5 frame deep Nuc to Warré the easy? way

    Thanks, seems like a great way to go. I am going to try this. The nuc frames may still be longer then the depth of two of my warré boxes. But I can always make a couple inch height extension the...

    I appreciate, and respect your depth of knowledge. Curious how it went when you tried the Warre, the difference in yields, problems with mites, etc.

    Re: 5 frame deep Nuc to Warré the easy? way

    My Warré bars are 11 ½ in (12 ½ with rebate) where the ones from the nuc will be 19 ½. So there is a 7 inch difference some of which will be...

    Re: Decided on a Warre Hive

    5 frame deep Nuc to Warré the easy? way

    Getting a 5-frame nuc this spring to use in a Warre hive. Idea is to do a transfer down into the Warre, rather than cutting the combs. So I am building a transfer box, with the plan of removing the...
