FAQ: 4-Way Mating Nucleus Colonies

Q1: Where do you get your 4-way mating nucleus boxes?

A1: Lewis and Sons Enterprises: http://www.lewisandsons.ca/

Q2: Do you feed 4-way nucleus colonies?

A2: So far, we have only fed the nucs with hive top feeders at the beginning set up stage as described. We don’t have specific feeders made up for the 4 way nucs. We’ve removed full honey frames and added foundation frames where necessary. It may be different in your conditions, but we do our mating during the main honey flow in these units.
