2 frame nuc
« on: January 02, 2021, 09:32:51 PM »
I have been wanting to try out some of Barnyard bees 2 frame nucs for making queens. I built 2 of my own, slightly modified from his version. Does anyone else have experience with them?   :o

I have experience with most configurations.  The smaller the space and colony size the more you have to be on your game.  They abscond a lot more often from mini mating nucs and two framers if you can't manage them correctly.  Your timing and management style has to be pretty precise.  Mating in five frames is a lot easier and timing isn't nearly as critical.
