Q. I’ve have just purchased 1/10/19 4x frame nuc for my 8 x frame hive. I have added the extra 2 x waxed frames to eitherend, after the 3rd or 4th day, I opened the tray and found 5 x lavae/grub like on the white tray… its been 2 x weeks and when I opened to check today. The queen was on the inside of the lid and I quickly noticed that the bees have not moved onto the other frames?
Am I not to worry or are they stressed? As the bee keeper whom I have purchased says they may be stressed and he was willing to pick them up and take away? Today has been the only day to open the box due the weather and my work commitments but did not have a proper thourough look at each individual frame because I was worried the queen would fly off.
