Hello. I have one hive that is from a swarm last year. The parent feral colony has swarmed at least 9 times in the last 3 years. My hive is doing very well and I had intended to take 2 or 3 frames later in May as a split, hopefully keeping the hive from swarming while still allowing the possibility that I might harvest 12 pints of honey for our use from the donor hive. However, I have 4 packages coming next week and after reading many of the posts on here, I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off putting one frame of brood with nurse bees in each of the boxes when I hive my packages. What do you think?
