i was wondering if maybe it is too late to hive a nuc. for my bday( may 29) i got a hive but it was late and didnt get here till today. i think i can get a nuc, but am unsure about the timeing.
I don't think it's too late with a nuc. I recieved my colony in a full hive yesterday and the guy I bought it from was delivering a couple of nucs that day also. Good luck and enjoy. I wouldn't count on any honey this year. I'm not sure I'm just a rookie.
My preference is a hive top; quart jar or a gallon zip lock bag pierced on top with holes. Put an empty super around it and top it off with the inner and outer covers. Reduce the entrance if the population is small.
