So, moving on could be due to being to big for the area? Hmmmmmmm, I reckon they will be ok then, there are five frames in the nuc with one more to go in when they settle down a wee bit and I reckon there is only Three full frames of bees, if you see what I mean so, lots of space for them to work in drawing comb etc. I will re house them in a hive in a couple of months if they show signs of getting over crowded
