Tell me all about nucs, please! How are they used as a backup or bolster?

Hey Beeks!

I've done a ton of research and reading in preparation of my first year of keeping (hoping to catch a swarm in a trap, if that fails, ordering a nuc next month).

I've seen lots of people say they keep a nuc as am insurance policy and they can be used to bolster a weaker colony. Yet, I don't think I've seen an explanation as to how a nuc is used in this regard.

Do you pull frames of capped brood and all them to a weaker colony? Or are you adding honey frames to a weak colony?

How are you using nucs in your apiary?
