I have ordered Langstroth Hives w/foundationless frames from Beethinking for my bees for this spring. I was considering installing a nuc vs pkg bees. This would mix the nuc frames that contain foundation with my new foundationless frames. Is this really not the way to go?? Im re-thinking that this may not be a good idea. My reasoning for the nuc was to take advantage of an established colony which seemed like a great idea given that I live in Maine and our season is very short.
Id appreciate thoughts on this. I need to purchase my bees this week.
Thank you !!
