The Nucs

Here's how the nucs look - double brood boxes on each one. Has not seemed to make much difference in their goings and comings in moving from the little to the big house.

I have saved a whole super full of honey for each of these nucs - Hive #6 and Hive #1 have 3 supers on them and I'll use one from each of these - don't want them to starve this winter.

We had about 1/2 inch of rain Sunday night.

Nuc #2 looks a little lopsided but I think it was the way I took the picture - whoops!

This was taken about 8 o'clock (pm) - still daylight and the bees are just hanging out on the front porch - Hive #1.
