Hope you are all keeping well.
I received two nucs from a supplier on Monday, placed them in a retirement community (as they wanted bees in the area). Then the next day, I was asked if I could move the nucs to a different location within the grounds. The move was successful, I think! Had to place an empty nuc to help those that went back to the old location, then took them back to the new spot.
Branches were placed at the entrance to the nucs to help with reorientation. How long do you think I should leave the branches in front of the entrance before removing them? And how long do I wait before transferring them into an actual hive?
Thanks a bunch!
