  4. Re: KY Beeks: warm enough for splits or checkerboarding?

    I found two dandy looking queen cells on one of my strong hives Saturday. Went ahead and pulled it, along with a couple brood frames. Got a frame of honey, made the split. Drones walking around in...

    Opinions please...

    Do you inspect during a flow???
