This 5 frame nucleus hive was created from an overwinter colony that confined the queen to lay in only a few inches of comb by surrounding her with honey stores. This caused the hive to dwindle and have only a few hundred bees left when I did my Spring inspection on 4-1-2012. The nucleus hive was created in hopes that the bees would allow her to lay in a larger area. The nucleus hive was boosted with a frame of brood from another hive.
