What I mean is, they have built their own comb where there are no frames, and its all messy in there. I don't want to rip it out because I don't want to harm the brood in there. so I figured i'd let them take their time working their way into the 8 frame box, and then when the queen starts laying in there put a queen excluder on, let the messy comb in the nuc hatch out, and then crush it, strain it, melt it down, all that. well that's the plan. make more sense now?
Its the end of summer here now. luckily our winter is only about 3 months, and hopefully a little less.
