UW River Falls trying to overwinter nucs

To lessen the dependence of and expense to Wisconsin beekeepers of replacing winter losses the UW @ River Falls is trying to develop a methodology to overwinter nucs.  A write up on their efforts is described in the link below.  This will be a challenging task because a nuc has limited food stores and the cluster size will be very small.  However, if they are successful it could be a boon to local beekeepers.
