I have a 5 frame nuc that is very strong and the queen was one the bees raised. I have a hive (1 of 4) that is very weak and was started with a package in late April. The Queen in that hive is useless. I haven't had the time this year to monitor very closely but at one point I thought I had laying workers and I couldn't find a queen. So I gave that hive some brood frames 2 successive weeks and they raised a queen but she has been very weak. Should I just let that hive go or dispatch her majesty and combine it through the newspaper method with the strong nuc.I am afraid neither the nuc nor the weak hive by themselves can survive the winter. I am in the mountains SW of Lexington VA. But I am also fearful of somehow contaminating the strong nuc with the bees from the weak hive. Any advice? Thanks.
