Nice work Al! How many nucs per year to do typically raise?

What size screen is used and where can you buy it?

Despite what the president of Michigan beekeepers in 2006 said you can not over winter nucs in Michigan like this.

the screen is 1/8 inch sold at most hardwear stores that are a little bit old timy. the new package ones like ACO and ACE in this area don't handle the stuff. I buy mine from a Do It Best one.

We never raise the same amount of nucs or spilt the same number. We consider what our winter looses were. How strong our colonies are that nmade it thru the winter and how much money we can put into new equipment like fondation a frames since I buy those yet.
