I have a question relating to the talk.

I don’t really want to start a nuc in my back garden – 2 hives is plenty! But I do need to do swarm prevention on one of the hives. Can I remove 2 frames of brood from the strong hive, shake all the bees off, and place them in my 2nd hive which is quite weak at the moment?

That way I reduce the chance of my strong hive swarming and can boost the weak hive – or am I missing something?

If push comes to shove I can move some frames of brood into a nuc as I do have the spare kit – and I desperately want to prevent the lovely ladies swarming this year.
