Increase swarm population for best chance of honey

1481 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  crofter
I caught a small swarm and a good sized swarm with mated queens. I have a strong new nuc this year. I am more interested in honey production than increasing hives. Is it better to donate a frame of brood from the nuc to one of the swarms or leave all three as they are. For best production this season which swarm would benefit most from a donor frame from the nuc and when to add the frame.
