« on: August 19, 2004, 12:56:37 PM »
I was thinking about doing a nuc or two next year. As in starting my own. Do you have to keep it just one story or can it be multiple stories tall? I plan to use it to take s frame of brood or honey to help out any struggling colonie. Is this feasible? Has anybody tried this? I'm really curious to hear all of you opinions! 8)

No rules on how high you can go with a nuc,  but it is usually more practical to move them into a 10 frame Langstroth as they grow.   Use of more common woodenware than having to have more nuc equipment.
