I have a nuc, which I made earlier this spring. It's doing okay. I did an inspection today and noticed a bit of wax worm activity on a small bit of comb towards the back. Their numbers are a bit low.
I did reduce the entrance so that they could defend better.
Another thought I was having was to rearrange the combs a bit, which is what I am curious about what people would think about this.
The first two bars have small beginner combs, which aren't getting bigger, both covered in bees though. It's bar #3 that has a decent size comb with good bee coverage as well.
I was think of moving the two small combs towards the back and putting #3 right up next to the entrance, which I have at the front end of the hive, not the middle. I figured this would also help the defend better.
What do y'all think about this idea?
My grandfather and great-uncle kept bees and my fiancée's grandfather, too. I want to pass this tradition along.
