    Canadian Nuc conversion to National

    Top ventilation was before mesh floor days. Now many have mesh floors there is no need for top ventilation.

    Time table for an early April start

    One problem there would not be enough bees in the hive to keep warm 11 frames of brood unless the hive was already full of bees. It would need to be a big swarm. A bit more than 3,5 pounds. But theoretically if you could ? I do agree method A is the best of the 2 with the imported queen W
