I installed 4 packages of bee's last saturday on Pierco plastic frames (how are your results with plastic frames?)with frame feeders and did a check on them 2 days ago and they look great!. I had a few questions about making splits because i want to expand as much as possible so that my retired father will have a number of bee hives to manage next year(were not looking to get any honey this year, just number of hives).
My first question is, when would be too late to make splits?.
How many splits can you make from one hive?
Off Topic but, I would like to give much thanks to those who created this forum, and those who make it what it is. Before accidently coming across this forum, all knowledge of bee's came from books that couldnt answer questions. After the initial huge excitment that i had i devoted all my spare time after that reading past posts and expanding my knowledge on beekeeping which led to my first 4 package of bee's which was a result of finding this website(Packaged bee's). And a fullfillment of my dads 20 year long wish to become a hobby beekeeper and for that I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart because only beekeeping took the depression out of retirement for my father
