I split a hot hive in april and it is going a little too well. There are two swarm cells on one of the frames. The queen is laying like crazy.

So can I take the frame with the two swarm cells, a frame of brood and some nurse bees And start another nuc?

Thank you, Mike! Last question: when moving a nuc to a 10 frame double, should they go in the upper or lower deep?

Id throw them into a 10 single then super when 70 or 80%
thats what i'd do. you dont wanna give'em too much empty space 'cause they cant defend it agaist beetles or wax moths. good luck,mike
