Re: 2 frame or 5 frame nuc?
I overwintered two hives and a nuc. One hive and two nucs succumbed to poor management. Currently at three hives, two nucs, and three mating nucs for a total of eight. Hope to keep splitting until I get to twenty. Got my first call for a bee removal. Bees are in a cavity in a cherry tree and the owner wants the tree left intact. Going to take a look Saturday. May need to build a bee vac.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
