How many nucs off of strong hives
Hi all, I'm coming out of winter with seven extremely strong hives. They are already backfilling and there are numerous queen caps scattered. One of my hives is two deeps and three medium supers and they are out of space. I'm wanting to do some splits or nucs for a few reasons. First and most importantly, I want to stave off swarming. Secondly, I just bought a house and my wife says I need to fund my hobbies from my hobbies. I have split hives and made nucs before but never on a large scale. My question is how many nucs can you pull off of one hive?.I know it'll be different for different scenarios. I'm just looking for a general idea here.
