2 Deeps, Lower empty of Stores, Switch to 2 lvl Nuc?
« on: January 11, 2009, 11:16:59 AM »
Need the experts call on this one guys and girls.
 I have nucs ready for the first warm day...Leave them with an empty( Drawn Comb only) deep or move all to a 2 level nuc?
Upper Deep is packed...Good Numbers as well.
Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

I've always left them alone.  Most of my bees are in the top box by spring, and then I just reverse the hive bodies when it gets warm enough.
