Installed an 8-frame nuc for a new “Hive2” 3 days ago.
All frames were full, so adding a 2nd box today.
What to feed?
- I have 1:1 syrup ready (with pH lowered via ascorbic)
- Should I add pollen patty and if so, when?
I have another hive “Hive1”, but it’s been weak also in its first season. First season for both so no frames of emerging brood to transfer.
