I picked up my nuc yesterday morning and made a pretty large (or medium) oversight. It was a medium frame nuc, and my Apimaye hive is a deep. Luckily I had ordered a medium and deep super for later, so I put the medium super on and put the nuc in it with the bottom deep filled with 10 empty frames.
I went back and forth on putting the medium frames in my deep hive, but decided to put the medium super on and once they build down into the deep body I will put in the queen excluder and the let whatever brood is in the medium super hatch and eventually it will just be honey. I do not want double brood boxes, so this really threw a wrench in my whole plan.
Was my decision to start the hive in a super better than just putting the medium frames in the lower deep hive?? Just seemed like them building down on the medium frames would make it a real pain to convert over to all deep frames later.
