My target is to have healthy, happy bees living in foundationaless frames, per @Michael_Bush’s philosophy, and in 8 frame medium boxes.
I have three packages arriving tomorrow morning.
I have 3, 5 frame medium nuc boxes set up and ready to go.
Do I put each package in just one 5 frame medium nuc box to start or go ahead and stack both boxes together immediately?
If I only use one of the nuc boxes for each hive, how will I know when to add the second nuc box?
My plan is to install the bees when it starts getting dark tomorrow.
If it rains tomorrow, should I wait for the rain to stop before I install them?
How will I know when it’s time to move them to the standard eight frame medium boxes?
I am a mixture of being a nervous new mother and also wee bit terrified of doing it wrong!
Thank you again!
