I've seen many people use just that with no problems.
I like your nucs, particularly the clips (?) that you have to join the nucs together. Are you using wood screws to secure the clips to the nuc bodies?I caught 6 swarms with 2 5 frame nucs without even trying setup like JWChesnut described View attachment 12064 View attachment 12064
You are using frames with foundation? How many folks here are using foundation in bait boxes? I don't. I use one frame of brood comb at the outside frame, remainder are foundationless.Thanks for the replies... It is a deep nuc. I was just a little worried about how much space the frames plus foundation took up.
