I always value your insight. I did feed two of my nucs has they had been stripped of all feed. They were closed up when I did that though. I didn't think to take it out when I opened them up last night. When I got home from work today, there were lots of bees trying to find a way in to them. I closed them up again, briefly, discovered that some cracks had opened up more and bee were going through them. Taped them shut. I opened them back now that it is dusk.
The others that I didn't feed, had dead bees inside the robber screen. At first I thought it was from fighting, but then I thought maybe it was the house cleaners, as I know there were some dead bees on the SSB.
I may be able to move them to a coworker's place miles away from here on Sunday. I don't know if there are hives around her or not.
I just don't know what to do. I'll open them up in the morning and see what is happening inside them. I have these on the back porch where I can watch them, but I'm beginning to think that I'm just imagining things and that if they were out of sight, they might be ok.
Any other suggestions to help them or to calm me down would be appreciated.
