My second hive was making swarm prep and I managed to shovel them (using a thin piece of cardboard, not a real shovel ) into a nuc box made of coreflute-like material. I gave them two frames of open & capped brood from their mother hive and three previously used/cut out frames. I decided the queen must be in there with them because they settled in immediately and have been calm & orderly since.
I chocked the nuc on both sides to keep it from being blown over if we get a strong enough wind. I have another 8 frame deep but need to assemble 3 more frames. Think they’ll be okay until tomorrow afternoon?
