    I've had Nuc splits in production yards and left them there with no problems... lots of drones available if your nucs need to mate a Queen... they will make some honey in deep frames if your ready for that... I made some medium supers to cover that'if I can remember that I made them and where their at, lol', I've taken some nucs home to my back yard' but when they got strong'' and proud they can get to be a problem with neighbors....3 deeps are easy to make humble though,,,,just make a 1 box split... attitude adjusted just make sure to reduce entrance with a new split for a month to stop robbing....
