So I live in MN, am setting up nucs to overwinter, Michael Palmer example, nucs over production colonies. I have 8 nucs started in July, they have 3 frames brood, some nectar in the 4th frame, so my question is, is it better to go to a single brood box and feed to get as much stores as possible, or do I remove a brood frame from the nucs and replace with comb and feed, or do I leave as is. I am a little concerned being in northern Minnesota that nucs may have a tough time. I have read about mountain camp feeding and will look into that in Feb, March if they need help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Before I divide the brood boxes and make bottom boards I would like to have an idea of which is better. Thanks.
