Good Day,

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

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

My Nuc didn't make it through the winter.

It was beginner error, not mites.

These are great Bees, I purchased from Andrew "treatment free " Munkres.

I will make Nucs, from the 2 Hives, that are coming out of the winter, doing well.

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

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.
