I like it. I will build some sort of frame of the proper length and give it a go. I don't like the chemicals. I know they probably are fine, but don't use them if I can avoid it. Thanks.Yes, a top bar nuc, just a place to set the honey bar aside while either getting more honey or closing up the hive. I have a bunch of top bar nucs. You could put it in a bucket if you like, but someplace to keep the robbers from trying to get to the honey. With my bars I could use a Lang box, but that may not work for you, it all depends on the size of your bars. I would rather not just dump all of the combs into the crush bucket. If there is some really pretty comb I would rather cut some of it out for comb honey.
Along the same lines as the Ammonia nitrate you could spray bee quick into a nuc and put the honey frames in that. That would get them rolling out, and it doesn't smell bad. And probably a little easier on the lungs if you do inhale it.
