Im thinking of switching the emphasis of my apiary from making a lot of honey to making up a substantial (for me) number of nucs for sale. I sold a few last spring that were the byproducts of swarm managment and it struck me as being comparitivly easy money. I took 15 production hives and another 8 nucs into winter. I have purchased 10 polystyrene mating nucs that I hope to use in the spring to help have a constant source of mated queens to go into new nucs. What adjustments in the spring should I be making, if any to accommodate making up more nucs? I hope to keep around 5 hives as production hives so I can have a little honey around as political capital with the neighbors and keep the wife happy. Those of you who make up a substantial number of nucs for sale, what should I be doing differently? Push pollen sub early? Thanks for the insight!
