The procedure is fairly strait forward. First remove the hive from the nuc, shake the bees off the frame into the new hive.
Next, cut through the wires which hold the bottom of the frame to the sides.
We use a pair of tree pruners. Make sure you clean these well both before and after use.
The final step is to place the lid on the hive and let the bees do their thing. Isn't it pretty?
Have a great day everyone.
