Over-Wintering Hives

Good Day,

I Have 2 Hives, with 2 Deeps, 1 Super, and 1 Nuc.

Should I place the wrapped Nuc, between the Full Hives?

Blessed Bees

How did it work out for you? I've never wintered nucs. Plan to next winter. I use a quilt box for insulation and absorbing excess moisture.

I have done over wintered Nucs for a few years they work out great
I guess a quilt box is ok ,I use 2 inch foam board have no moisture issues.
I use the double 4 frame for Nucs I have friends use 5 frames they both work well
I think any Beekeepers on the second year should have some Nucs it's just great insurance
Why go pay some 200 to 250 for a Nuc when you can do it your self for penny's on the dollar
Just my thoughts
