I ordered two nucs from Don Kutchenmeister (aka Fatbeeman), and they are to be shipped in mid April. (I might add parenthetically, that Mr. Kutchenmeister was very pleasant, gave great advice, and endured many silly questions from me. I enjoyed my conversation with him very much). In any event, I have never bought a nuc, and it occurred to me (after I hung up) that I have no idea what to do with these things when they arrive. What exactly does one do wit a nuc on arrival? How does the transition from nuc box to hive take place? Is feeding necessary? Should I expect the nuc to produce honey its first year?
