  1. Beekeeping 101
    Hello all. First year keeper here. A little bit of a read, so I wanted to say thank you to anyone who is willing to indulge me. :) I was able to go pick up my Nuc on 5/5. The beekeeper selling the Nuc was very nice and showed me through the nuc, including the queen (unmarked), brood...

    Hi there— I’m a second year BK in MA. I installed 2 nucs 8 days ago. Last years hive died so I gave each hive some drawn frames & 2 honey frames to help get them started. (Those frames were examined & put in the deep freeze JIC there was something wrong w last year’s crew.) I took a peek...
  3. Beekeeping 101
    Hello! This is my first post. Last year was my first year of beekeeping. I thought I was going into the winter strong but lost my bees in early December likely due to buttoning them up too tight. I felt terrible about this, but have chalked it up to a learning experience and am ready to try...

    I have an overwintered 8 frame hive (one deep) where the overwintered cluster is really small. Queen is laying, but not many bees and they are only on a few frames. I gave them a frame from another hive of capped brood to boost their numbers. SHB is a problem in this yard and I am worried about...

    There are some truly good beekeepers on here and two who stood out to me are Mr Palmer and Mr Steppler. In fact I watch MP's 'The Sustainable Apiary' , like a great movie, at least twice a year. In my search to find applicable knowledge concerning Nucs I routinely emulate what these two are...

    In my previous post I described an issue I ran into when trying to move two nucs into a resource hive. Long story short I think I screwed up and set one colony back inadvertently. and now we're getting well into the cooler weather so I'm not sure it has ruined to rebound. So when I do my final...

    What are you all using for feeders in cardboard nucs? I don't want to use Boardman (robbing risk) or in hive type that takes room from the growing bees. i do community feed as well but I don't think the sound nuc with few foragers is able to get much feed that way. I'm considering using the...

  13. Warre and other Compact Vertical Hives Forum
    Getting a 5-frame nuc this spring to use in a Warre hive. Idea is to do a transfer down into the Warre, rather than cutting the combs. So I am building a transfer box, with the plan of removing the transfer box as quickly as possible, maybe by mid summer and harvesting the honey. Question is...

  15. Top Bar & Horizontal Hive Forum
    I picked up a 5 frame nuc about a mont ago (6/8) and installed them into my first top bar hive. This past Saturday, when I went through the hive, I was unable to find the queen. I could very well have missed her, but more alarming was that I also saw 3 or 4 swarm cells and possibly 1...

    Hi all, I'm proud to say that I've brought four, five over five medium nucs through the winter (knock on wood they make it through March, but they look strong and are actually bringing in some white pollen today.) I'm wondering when the right time is to move them into my eight frame equipment...
