Hi everyone, I’m a new bee keeper, and attracted a swarm into a nuc about 5 weeks ago, while I was awaiting delivery of my flow hive. I finished putting together and setting up the flow hive yesterday and transferred the frames into the flow brood box, expanding the 5 frames to 8.
My first time suited up and smoking, it seemed to go well. I wanted to get it done before Christmas and lucky I did as the nuc frames were very
I didn’t see the Queen but I was working quickly with a quick look over.
All the bees are re-orienting themselves this morning, but some are still confusedly hanging around the nuc position (I took it away). The nuc was around a metre higher and a couple of feet to the right, I hope they will sort themselves out soon?
I joined the local bee society but haven’t met up yet. Read a few books, watched countless YouTube clips. I’m sure I will be trawling through these pages too.
See you around the forum!
