Hello there, another question for you:
So I have a new queen, and I don't want her to go to waste.... I know it is late in the season, though I wanted to know.
Can I take brood from my Very Strong Hive, and add it to a new deep hive box, and add a few frames of honey to get my new queen by through the winter???? Should the brood frame be full of Bees, or not? And how many if one isn't enough??
I currently have one other hive, with LOTS of Brood frames, and a good amount of honey. I had orginally wanted to requeen a hive that was weak, though it was lost to the wax moths.
Mr. Bush suggested a nuc, though I don't have one, and do have a empty deep and extra frames. Wanted to know what the best M.O. would be for this operation. I need to do something quick as my queen is getting restless without a new home. Please advise, I appreciate the input you all have to offer.
Your ideas and suggestions are appreciated.
Cheers for now.
