Hi all, I started keeping last year and am familiar with installing a package of bees...however, this year I'm trying something new and have ordered 2 nucs from a local beek a little south of here, which I will be picking up sometime in the next few weeks...getting hyped!
My question is this - for the nucs I have been getting a lot of different opinions on starting them... should I be worried about feeding (I assume I would want to feed them)? For how long? Also, should I keep the entrances reduced (I assume I would, again)? If so, for how long?
And another quick one: Should I wait for the other 5 frames in the deep to be drawn out before I add another super? Should I be going with the 7/10 rule here (I assume I would AGAIN) before I add another deep?
Any input would be appreciated, as I still consider myself a novice at this ;)
Thanks a bundle yall
