It’s been a late start this season and as of today’s date I consider it three weeks later than 2014.
My over wintered nucs are in two camps, the very ordinary and the romping ahead camp. The temptation is to borrow from the good to boost the poor but no I am resisting. The good un’s will end up as colonies very shortly, the next two weeks should do it with some warmth, and the laggedybobs can toddle along until it is swarming time when they will be useful, as in the queens can head up new nucs and their bees can be added to existing stocks to give them a boost up, or added in to swarm nucs to boost them.
Ah the delights of nucs, they are so versatile.
