Another possible problem to fast buildup of the nucs is the availability of drawn comb. For the nucs to build quickly you want the queens laying asap not waiting for a small group of workers to build out foundation.Hi,
I am actually planning on becoming a beefarmer in the future. At the moment only part-time as I still have another job.
Do you think I am on the right track of splitting my colonies into as many nucs as possible to sell.
I am hoping I can sell some overwintered nucs in spring 2025 to cover costs of equipment.
I will be more then happy if I get 20 splits from each hive at the end of the year, but would like more, although if I don't get, it doesn't matter too much.
Thanks for answering my questions.
