Re: combing nuc with 8 frame hive
Brad, this may sound like dumb question, but why do you want to combine a very strong nuc with an already strong but queenless colony? I think that your flow is over like mine, or at least nearly so. Let the queenless colony continue to work whatever is out there and raise a new queen. Besides, it sounds like your "nuc" is ready for a double 8 frame hive of its own.
Just move one of the frames with eggs over to the now queenless hive.
Went to the other thread to remind myself of what you are experiencing.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
