Sorry to start another thread but I have a question and need some input before the dumping gets under way today. What do you think about this. I have 2 brand new queens that hatched yesterday in cages. The hive I am shaking out today is 2 deeps and 2 mediums. What if I put 5 frames in 2 nucs and then release a virgin queen in each nuc. If you think this will work, should i just move the 5 frames with bees on them directly into the nucs or maybe set the 2 nucs in the same spot where the hive is and then shake all the bee out and let them fly into the nucs. I'm thinking shake them out on ground to get them confused and maybe reset. This is way above my pay grade, need to come to the experts.
