I split my one hive last month and put the frames in a nuc (2 mixed brood, 2 honey and 1 pollen).  We decided to feed the nuc as well, but each time we gave them feed they would get robbed.  Any suggestions on feeding without the nuc getting robbed?

What does a "robbing screen" do?  How does it work?

What it does is let the bees from your hive find their way in and out, but the robbing bees are confused and can not find their way in.
