How long do you all feed your nucs after installing them in your bee yard? I have been feeding my nucs for three weeks and on is going like gangbusters, the other is doing well but not as great as the first. Thanks for any info you can give.

When I first make up my nucs I make sure the frames have a good honey band on them. I don't feed at this time.

Once the queen is laying and a field force has been recruited I don't feed if there's any kind of flow on.

If the flow slows down I feed until winter or until I'm sure they can survive the winter. Their always in a ten frame deep by this time.
