Thank you for your response. We are beginners and lost our bees over the winter, we suspect varroa but we are not sure so someone for the department of agriculture is coming by on Thursday to inspect the hive, let’s hope it wasn’t something worse.
The Nuc we are get has 6 frames, 4 of which are brood. I was just thinking to bust the hive and not waiting so long to put the super on. We will think about it.
Once I add the nuc to the brood box, I think I will wait and not add the packaged bees to the hive. Because I don’t want to introduce any other diseases that may come with the package or vice versa.
Thank you again you outline will be very helpful if I decide to add the package.
