I could pee on one hive and have it come through winter, and claim what? Because I didn't pee on the hive last year and it died, that my pee is something special?

Bjorn, have you been peeing on your hives again?   evil   I know it's a thrill, but a little self-control please.   grin

Now that..........was self control!  grin

Way to go on Self Control there Bjorn! Hey I second that motion! 3 cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!! applause

actualy we have proverb  here in Finland "on niiku persiihi ammuttu karhu".

Which means in English "he is like a bear shooted into  the arse ".
Björn is bear in Sweden.

Wow... after watching those two videos, I'm glad I live in the south. Too much work for hiving in the winter.

  MP's reference to them as being "brood factories"(00.33.40 in first video).  He mentions pulling 2 frames of brood from several nucs and adding them to a production hive that needs a boost. 

There are many uses for nucs.   The point I got was they are not there to become honey producers but to use to support the production hives as needed.
