newly installed nuc, what should I bee seeing?
I created my first nuc ever on Saturday upon inspecting my hive that swarmed on Tuesday and there were like six queen cells and I thought why waste?
It was like three combs total, one from the swarm hive with a couple of queen cells and two from other hives. Put in the nuc with a couple of bare combs (should mention this is a top bar nuc).
I fed them yesterday because I haven't been seeing any foraging behavior at all. All the nurse bees are staying put. Is this typical? should I be doing anything different?
My grandfather and great-uncle kept bees and my fiancée's grandfather, too. I want to pass this tradition along.
