can someone explain what a nucleus is.
Nucs and splits are the same thing,but generally terms used to describe their purpose. Splits are made to increase your colonies from your bees. Nucs are purchased from someone else and they make them to sell at a profit.Most nuc you find for sell in New England are 5 frames deeps
can you have a full size colony in one
IMHO No you can not you only got 5 frames of deeps
do you have to transfer them after it gets so big.
Yes if you buy a good one over a week old or so.
