Top bar NUC
Back on the 2nd of March, I took some queen cells and put them in a top bar nuc(12 bars). Checked them today and the used to be virgin queen has already got two bars full of capped brood!!!
The old queen that swarmed out of the big top bar hive, I installed in a 10 frame lang hive, and she has two full deep frames of capped brood. They have drawn out four more frames.
Looks like this year is going to be good one, if we get some rain down here in Florida.
