Re: Can Palmer Style Double Nucs be used to produce Honey?
A plastic frame can be adapted as the divider - attach wood filler strips to the frame top & bottom, and frame or box ends. My bees like having a "shared" frame in the middle, and they get an extra half frame of space to work with there. A plastic frame can also be cut down ( one side shaved off) to provide for another 1/2 frame of comb on the outside edge. Using both allows for 5 total frames of comb on each side of a divided 10 frame box. Pics of the setup were posted here a few years back, when I first came up with the idea.
I've never run excluders in the winter, per JC's logic.
After 40 years of beekeeping, I've come to realize that the bees can fix most of my mistakes.
