    Hey all,
    If you take a bar of bees from one hive and a bar from another hive and a bar from a third and so and so forth, to make a split why do the bees not fight or kill eachother?

    Because they are too confused and disoriented. They loose the sense of colony long enough for the bees to get to know one another, even if only aquainted.

    That usually works because of the confusion. Where a bar from each of two are more likely to fight but they may do ok too if you smoke them heavily.
