Feeding advice on two nucs

1477 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  GOHoney
Rec'd two 5frme nucs and have transferred them into two 10frame boxes. Here in Central Fl, the bloom is in. The 5frames that were put in there along with the 5 from the nucs (these HAVE foundation) are foundationless. My question is, should I feed to help them build comb/brood, or just let them do their thing and build out natural comb on their own?

Okay, guess i'll be feeding. I built two of FATBEEMANS enclosed hive feeder with milk jugs but I did adapt it to take a full one gal container. Actually built four but the first two just the bottom of the jug but those hardly held squat. Built my boxes 10" tall to take the whole milk jug. I put em on this afternoon. (And reduced entrance to couple inches.)
