Would you take time please,to help me out.
I have 3 fairly strong hives and three small nucs. The nucs came about because I had ordered 3 new queens. I had put these new queens into nuc boxes with some started frames.
This was done 2 months ago. However,I had developed heart problems and had started to see if I could get a by-pass surgery. With the heart problems I could not do anything to /with the bees several weeks before my 3 bypass surgery and could not do anything with them for 6/7 weeks after the surgery. The surgery was very successful.
,for with I am very thank full. The Lord has been good to us!. But now I need to get the bees ready for winter. Can I just spray let's say a few frames from the strong colonies with sugar water,or both the weak and the strong,and add the strong ones to the weak ones with the new queens?
To even them out sort of?
Or must I use the newspaper method? It is getting late in the season here.
Thank you for your help.
