Nuc is a 5 framer. outside 2 frames have lots of pollen and little honey on top perimeters. Middle frame has brood. Frames on either side were sparsely capped and empty celled. Maybe I could pull one of those?
Yea, I have 2 covers with holes, and they leak and are delaminating the plywood on the underside. That's why I decided not to cut a hole in my nuc covers. Agreed, if you're going to feed, from the top is better over boardman, which seems to promote robbing. I figured I'd not cut any more holes in the tops and if I needed to feed a hive I'd rotate tops.
