I had a hive at Joseph's in Eagle Rock. It was in a wooden Nuc. About two months ago I dumped in a Nuc of queenless bees. I also added another nuc box. They have done great—I went over Sunday and put them in regular boxes. Now they have more room.
I also was doing a trap out at Debra Beards house in Pasadena. A month ago I went over and found no bees in the box and no bees coming out of the escape. Bummer.
Well, I came back in a week to take it down, and bees had swarmed into the nuc box. Wonderful! Plus, there are bees going in and out through tile in roof. I arranged for all the bees to go into the new box.
