I purchased my first Nuc back in late November of 2020…
Everything has been going great, super was put on once bees filled out the brood box and the bees seemed to be working there new space well.
About two days ago my hive unfortunately swarmed on me. Luckily I was able to capture the swarm and now have them setup in another hive. The swarm was MASSIVE, I found it weird that they swarmed so quickly as they had plenty of space to work in the super.
Anyway now I have a parent colony and the swarmed colony. Should I be feeding both these colonies or reducing their entrances? Any advice until next week when I do a hive inspection looking for queen activity.
It’s currently The middle of February heading toward the end of summer
Thanks for your help
