I made up my first nuke yesterday late afternoon, showers today. I put 5 frames of day old eggs, nectar, brood, and some honey and shook lots of bees and nectar. To me this sounds like they'll have a wonderful time in their new home. One thing I am wondering about is that one frame was full of nectar, is this a good thing or should i have gave them capped honey instead? Also is it okay to look in a week to see if they have a queen cell or should I just feed them and check in a month?
What about space? I did add a lot of bees, maybe to much, I was worried since its only 5' from their old hive that half would go back. How early should I give them more room?
