I did a swarm prevention split on 29 May 2017 and the queen was out and laying by 18 June. The nuc (5 over 5 medium) is doing great - nice brood pattern, resources. I had to add extra resource from a shake out hive (honey and frames of pollen) that I added last week, so they have resources.
I was wondering, since we are in a dearth right now (Piedmont of NC), should I keep them in the 5 frame nuc or transfer them to a 8 frame medium?
I use all 8 frame medium equipment.
I just don't want them to get crowded out and swarm. I had that happen earlier this year with a different hive.
