I have a hive that is in it's second season . I openned it up today with intensions of splitting it for increase . It has 3 deep hive bodys and 3 supers on it . They have every cell full of nectar in the deeps and not a drop in supers .
I found the queen wondering around like was lost with no brood visable at all anywhere .I placed her into a 4 frame nuc with 2 drawn empty combs along with a drawn full frame of nectar and included a bunch of her bees .Was this a good move ? I plan on giving them another deep on the bottom with a new queen I have in the morning .
Some can learn by others mistakes , others have to whizz on the electric fence for themslves .
