    Rich, having a few stragglers probably isn't a big deal. if you pull half and then remove the board to grow the other half up, they will work it out. If you reuse it for mating, same thing.

    jw, any idea on how common it is to have the bees glue the follower board down to make it really hard to remove. I hadn't thought of that.

    Not sure. Follower board woud be just like a frame as far as getting glued in. Mating nucs don't have many foragers so popolis shouldn't be as much of a problem and dividers probably will just need a good tug. Just projecting on known and observed behavior.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    I like the idea of the divider board. I'll make one or two next week that I can insert. Will not be difficult to put one in from build. A basic table saw here, should work fine. I'll also build some 2 and 3 frame nucs.

    If you are on a smart phone like I am, just use google translate. It means yes, that is the right answer.I translated it as good answer, but I don't speak French.
