Thanks Trev, perfect timing as my Technosetbee double nuc box arrived this morning. If you had no access to new Queens would it be ok to leave them with the Queen they make? Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

[USER=2708]@Linda W[/USER] Certainly, Any queen is better than no queen. I like using mated queens as there is really no brood break. (maybe 10 days). You could also purchase virgin queens. I also like them and I have had great success with them.

Thanks Trev, Is that one of your Apiaries? I've only seen vids at what looks like your home yard before. Is there any disease risk in using the same nuc to hold the Queen frame from all your hives?

That is my partner and my yard. There is no risk at all by using that NUC box continuously. There is nothing on or in it that the bees can use to feed their young. Also the bees are only in the box for 5 min or so. AFB is always a risk, however, everything we do does not pose a risk. Move on.
