Nuc transfer time of day question


#1

Hi, I brought home my Nuc hive, after a long trip for the bees, so was advised to place the Nuc hive next to the Flow brood box, let them settle in for a few days and then move them over. Is there a time of day which is better than other times to do this? Many thanks for your help.

I’ve always done it the same day and at the most convenient time for me.

No need for settling in my opinion. Put nuc next to new hive. Open up in half an hour. Let them fly for a while then move the hive over and install the frames.
