3 frames nucs at this time of year


#1

G’day, I live in the Adelaide Hills and at present I have 4 hives in my back yard. I also have a Paradise 6 frame Nuc and Mate polystyrene unit sitting in my shed doing nothing. I would like opinions on whether it is too late to start 2 x three frame nucs in it at this time of year. My intention is to use them as starters to raise their own queen and then transfer them to 5 frame nucs to over winter. Is it too late in the year to do this?, regards Neil
