3 weeks ago I transferred a nuc into a BN hive. All seems to have settled down ok, I now have brood/stores on 6 frames but no super added yet. When should I remove the entrance block? At the moment it is in place but on it's limited setting. The bees aren't covering the entrance - unless it's a hot day, but for the last 10 days or so, it's been quite cool and cloudy/rainy and only a dozen or so have been visible near the entrance (although I've only seen this at 4pm when I've got back from work, so I don't know what they're doing for the rest of the day!)
Any sugestions please?

Not sure what you mean by brood/stores on 6 frames. Do you mean 6 frames of brood with some stores on each or some frames of brood and some frames of stores?

I suspect you mean the first. If so and the fact you are asking the question is you suspect the answer.

If you didn't have a forum to ask for reassurance what would you do?

Go on pull it out.
