Introduction in the nucleus colony

In fine weather, we make a spare nucleus hive with a few brood combs to which we add bees from an additional brood comb. The nucleus hive is placed slightly to the side. All the old bees abandon the nucleus hive and towards evening, the queen can be introduced. Liquid food is added to the nucleus hive.

25 - The queen has been readily accepted
