      My 2 new nuc hives have just reached their 7 of 10 frames of built comb with capped and uncapped brood in the deep so I’ve added a honey super.  I debated about whether I should leave the hive top feeder on to give them feed because they have to build the comb in the super which has wax coated foundation.  Any opinions about the feeding?  Should I keep feeding them until they build the comb or stop taking the feed?
