I have a 6 frame nuc which also has a super. For a few years it was outside my workshop and it caught a swarm at least once every year!!! I shouldn’t have moved it! I guess being that little bit wider and with a super too, it made it a good size.
One year, whilst Dave Peckham was with me, a swarm came inside my workshop and hived itself on the top shelf of some metal racking upon which was a super. Quite a sight and very funny as my son Jack was in there working in his car and he hates bees!! Bless them, you never really know what they will do….
