I have a question. How do nucs fair over winter? It would seam like they would need more honey to make it.
Plus, what is some good advice for making it through the winter. I had 7 hives in the fall. One was literally stolen!
It was not a bear. LOL. The other 6 made it! Then I've lost two since. One swarmed right before the temp dropped to 17 out of the blue. The bees left in the hive didn't have enough heat. I'm pretty satisfied though. I've done two splits and so far so good.
I'm thinking of doing some splits toward the end of June and leaving them in nucs for the winter, but if that's a mistake, let me know.
Thanks in advance.
