Spent the winter reading about bees, watching videos about bees and much of the last month or two accumulating beekeeping stuff, building hive components, a fenced bee compound, 6 foot fence 10,000 volts plus backed up with barb wire. So tomorrow is the big day, I am off with a friend 8:30am to go and get 5 nucs in cardboard boxes. Three hives will be Langstrough, 2 will be DE national so plan to set one up in a solid nuc with a tranfer board and DE body above, the other will go in a Langstrough box with half blocked off, then an adapter board and a DE box above. Once the queen moves up excluder goes beetween the 2 boxes untill brood hatches out of lower box. After that lower langstrough box will get pulled and frames go in to other hives. Problem is the weather, been raining for weeks and looks like a soggy day tomorrow possible thunder storms with not much change over the next few days. Also time gets tight over the weekend. Given that should we get the nucs home, and transfer to the hives right away, wait a bit to let things settle then transfer maybe under a tarp if rain is persisting, or set up the nucs with an opening and do the transfer some evening this week? Thanks for any thoughts on it.
